Juss Kaur

Dr Juss Kaur 3.5 MBDr. Juss Kaur has been an international education consultant since 2008, having successfully mentored over 400 teachers in Saudi Arabia, UAE, India, and Nigeria. Juss taught Science and Mathematics in Montreal for 25 years before she returned to the University of Oxford to fulfill a childhood dream of getting a doctorate. Following six years as a research associate in the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology at McGill University, she is currently an adjunct professor in the same department. Juss Kaur volunteers as a Sikh liaison at the interfaith offices at both Concordia and McGill Universities. Passionate about teaching and inspiring youth to fully cultivate their potential, Juss currently also volunteers as a motivational speaker at special events.
During her time at Oxford, Juss rekindled her love for the arts and started painting again. This creative process, along with the guidance of her spiritual mentor, led her to cultivate her feeling of being one with the universe. All her paintings attempt to capture the particle nature of the universe, signifying that beneath all our surface differences we are all the same basic structure (molecules, atoms, etc). Within her paintings she lovingly handwrites thousands of miniscule mantra to bring this concept to life. Dr. Juss Kaur is an accomplished artist, sharing her vision of oneness, tolerance and love with others through her art.

What is TEDxMontrealWomen?

The TEDxMontrealWomen event challenges each and everyone of us, as members of society, to question and define our values and beliefs in an effort to create an awareness and understanding of why we behave as we do, what motivates our behaviors and what drives our decisions to conduct our lives as we do. With this increased consciousness, we discover that we are more empowered than we previously thought to make positive, disruptive and impactful changes in whichever spheres of influence we choose. TEDxMontrealWomen is an independently organized event and an integral part of the global TEDWomen community.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxMontrealWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxMontrealWomen event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
