Born and raised in small-town Alberta, Harnarayan Singh has risen through the broadcast ranks as a prominent media personality in Canada’s favourite sport, challenging the status quo along the way.
Since his “Bonino, Bonino, Bonino” call on Hockey Night Punjabi during the Pittsburgh Penguins 2016 Stanley Cup run and with over 700 games of experience as an NHL broadcaster, Harnarayan’s story has spread throughout the hockey world, allowing him to host games and commentate ‘Play-by-Play’ for Sportsnet in English on a national level. As the NHL aims to grow the game in new markets and diversify its fan base, Harnarayan symbolizes the power sport has to unite people. 

Presentation: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Description: Like many of his hockey-loving peers, Alberta-native Harnarayan Singh dreamt about a career within the sanctum of the sport they idolized. But, there was a slight difference – he didn’t look like his classmates nor the broadcasters on television. Whether you’re working in a classroom, corporate setting or household, Harnaryan shares the lessons learned from his experiences to explain why incorporating diversity, equity and inclusion into an organization’s DNA is the only way forward. Through his memorable stories, he helps guide audiences through challenging and emotional conversations. He reminds us that such discussions are wholly necessary for organizations to progress through equitable ways.
