ABSTRACT
The article discusses the career of Indi Seehra, human resource (HR) director at the University of Cambridge. With a belief in Sikhism, Seehra said that behaviors on patience, tolerance, building a consensus, and putting ideas into action influenced him. He has a firm belief in justice for the right reasons which made him join organizations such as Soca, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), and the Department for Work and Pensions in Great Britain. Seehra aims to make the university more competitive in recruiting academics and researchers overseas.
