An Inspirational Educationist on a Mission

An Inspirational Educationist on a Mission

by Dr. Ruby Bakshi Khurdi, an Award Winning Educationist 

“I believe success comes to those, who work for it…There is no success formula, we need to create one!”

As a shy Indian girl, it was not easy for me to find a job and start working in Switzerland, I had my struggles too… Even after starting my teaching carrier here in a management university, I did face a glass ceiling since I was the youngest lecturer & a woman! I had to work very hard consistently to prove myself, magic didn’t happen in a day. I have been teaching Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate students in Hospitality & Business Schools in Switzerland. I teach courses related to Human Resources, Communications, Business Ethics, Luxury, and Marketing. I can proudly say today I am teaching in a highly reputed college, I am an inspirational speaker, and I have served as Academic Dean of a well-known boarding school. I gave a TEDx talk and am constantly invited as a keynote Speaker to various international conferences to speak about Emotional Intelligence and Women’s Empowerment.

Since early childhood, I have been a core humanitarian. I would accompany my parents to charity events. I would always think how can we remove poverty? How we can provide shelter to homeless people? Why are old people so fragile & helpless? Can we stop aging & keep old people healthy? Gradually I started to understand the basic realities of life – I thanked my stars that I was born into a family where I didn’t have to struggle for physiological needs. Our parents gave us, me & my little sister high moral values & taught us the importance of good education in life!

I firmly believe Education & Communication are strong pillars in developing a progressive nation. My mission is to keep creating educational awareness about different social issues through my voice! I want to connect with a global army of humanitarians who will help me in my mission. I would like to provide a better platform for learning and performance to various people across the globe, organize creative educational sessions, and train more like-minded people! I was highly appreciated for my efforts in the field of Education at a conference in the United Nations, Geneva.

When I came to Switzerland, I faced a big cultural shock, I felt lonely as I could not communicate with people due to the language barrier. As a founder of the Indo-Swiss Cultural Network, I am trying to create a bridge to help members from both communities to understand & respect their cultures. As a community leader, I actively organize cultural events, invite people from other cultures & help in integration. Connecting people gives me happiness.

As the Founder and President of InterculturELLE Réseau Des Femmes, a socio-cultural network for women to connect, share, support, and discover each other in sisterhood! I have the support of the local community. I am working tirelessly to lead and help women from diverse backgrounds globally.

RAY Academy Swiss – Re-Invent the Awesome You is my latest venture – a humble initiative to help people in personality development & make speaking fun! I want to help people build confidence, give them a voice & create an Impact!

I have created various online tutorials which are available on my YouTube channel to help people develop their skills.

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG4) of the United Nations emphasizes Quality Education – I am trying to reach out to people living in the remote areas of certain developing countries where there is no internet facility.

I am on a mission to educate people on life skills that are essential for their survival!
