Zabina Bhasin MD
Dr. Zabina Bhasin, Founder of In KidZ, is a South Asian American Child Psychiatrist. A Cornell-educated diversity and inclusion (DEI) and mental health expert is affectionately known as Dr.Zee.
Dr. Zee empowers all with unique tools to effectively raise the next generation teaching us how to listen to our children in a meaningful way.
She is on a mission to educate our children and change the world through play. It's essential that you know that her work isn't just a project or a trend. As someone bullied throughout her life for being different, this is her personal story; as a child psychiatrist, it's her professional work. As someone who feels incredibly called to this - it is her life's mission. Her expertise and the work to use games, toys, and fun to teach serious topics like diversity, inclusion, belonging, and more have taken her from news media like Good Morning America.
At In KidZ, creating toys and products designed to celebrate diversity is just the beginning. The company is expanding to broaden its reach through books, television programming, classrooms, and businesses around the country. And we're doing it all with a single goal in mind - to make diversity no longer an issue and the cultural norm.
Yes, our country is in a crisis, but the good news? Not only can we change it for our children, but we can also change it WITH our children, and she is here to prove it.
