Dr. Rumeet believes that “Why?” is the most critical question to ask anyone about their goals in life. Whether she’s speaking to a 7th-grade focus group or a high-powered CEO leadership workshop, Rumeet’s genuine interest in each individual with whom she is interacting is palpable.
But what is Dr. Rumeet’s own personal “Why?” When she was only 25 years old, Dr. Rumeet Billan was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network. She was awarded that honor again just three years later.
Her 2013 TEDx talk in Nova Scotia was adapted into a workshop for students in Ontario, Canada. She authored “Who Do I Want To Become?”, a book and free learning resources for children and adults wondering what they want to do with their lives.
Partnering with Thomson Reuters and Women of Influence, Dr. Rumeet created, designed, and led a groundbreaking research study entitled “The Tallest Poppy,” examining the causes, costs, and solutions of the silent systemic syndrome impacting high achieving women in the workplace.
That’s just the beginning.
