Toastmasters International-Emotional Intelligence: The Self-Aware Leader

The Three C's for Managing Unconscious Bias

Presented/streamed live from the stage at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Dima Ghawi delves into the intricacies of unconscious bias, uncovering the root of predispositions and sharing methods for managing unseen prejudices. The dialogue focuses on three essential messages related to Curiosity, Courageousness, and Commitment. These three C's emphasize the importance of:

  • Sparking curiosity through self-reflection and continued conversations about discrimination and conscious/unconscious biases;
  • Finding the courage to stand up and challenge the old programing, breaking free of harmful norms, and becoming allies for minority groups; and
  • Committing to the continuous journey of self-improvement and taking an active role in being part of the solution.

She is here to speak to the future leaders, the rebels, and the visionaries—those who are ready to shatter limitations, reach their full potential, and become a part of the global community for change.
