Rashmi Airan is an ethics trailblazer, spreading her message that our relationships and connections empower us to overcome extreme adversities in life. In Rashmi’s case, to live with remorse but not let it define her. Rashmi, tells her powerful story to deliver game-changing messages to universities, law firms, corporate teams, and trade associations around the United States. She invokes her personal experiences and ethical thought leadership to discuss ethical issues in business, inspire change in how we view success, and to enhance our decision-making to flourish ethically.
In addition to being a mother of two, Rashmi was a successful lawyer who graduated with honors from Columbia Law School. After working for several major corporations, she launched an independent law practice in Miami, Florida. During the housing boom, she was recruited to work with a local real-estate developer who later engaged in questionable business practices. Rashmi’s drive to succeed financially and to give her children the best life possible created an ethical blind spot for her. She chose not to question her client’s behavior despite her inner voice screaming “ask questions!” Her involvement resulted in a six month sentence to Federal prison, alongside a $19M judgment against future earnings, required community service hours, and 3 years supervised release. In prison, Rashmi felt shame and remorse for her decisions. Taking in six months of federal prison life, Rashmi came to a place of peace and self-forgiveness. While being immensely humbled by this life-changing experience, she emerged with invaluable lessons learned both personally and professionally. Rashmi shares her emotional development of living with remorse, but not letting it define you. She is determined to create a culture of conversation around ethics and compliance and to integrate ethics into all aspects of our lives.
