Anu Gupta

Anu Gupta is an educator, lawyer, scientist, and the founder and CEO of BE MORE with Anu, an education technology benefit corporation that trains professionals across corporate, nonprofit, and government sectors to advance DEIB and wellness by breaking bias. His work has reached 300+ organizations training more than 80,000 professionals impacting over 30 million lives.

As a gay immigrant of color, he came to the work of breaking bias after almost ending his life due to lifelong experiences with racism, homophobia, and Islamophobia. The realization that bias is learned—and can be unlearned—helped lead him out of that dark point and inspired a lifelong mission to build a global movement for social healing based on principles of mindfulness and compassion. A peer-reviewed author, he has written and spoken extensively, including on the TED stage, the Oprah Conversation, Fast Company, and Newsweek.

Anu is a trained meditation and yoga teacher with over 10,000 hours of meditation practice and has a JD from NYU Law, MPhil in Development Studies from Cambridge University, and BA in International Relations and Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies from NYU. Rooted in his ancestral Buddhist and Kriya yoga lineages, he is also a student of Sufi, Daoist, Christian, and animist wisdom. He lives in New York City with his partner.

His first book, Breaking Bias, will be published by Hay House in September 2024.
