She recently completed a term as Advisor to the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Representative for business and human rights. From 1999-2008, Bader worked for BP in Indonesia, China, and the UK.

Among many other activities, she serves on the advisory board of The OpEd Project, an initiative to broaden the range of voices in public discourse.In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
