In these times of divisive politics and unapologetic incivility by public figures, we’re proud to discuss Commonalities with Thought Leader Sheema Khan on this week’s INSPIRING LEADERS Podcast.
“Rather than running on auto pilot and delegating critical thinking to others, it starts with the Leaders to take the time, to evaluate, think for themselves and use their intuition.”
Do you believe the “Official Story” that you are told? Or do you focus on the facts and make up your own mind? As leaders, the former can lead to divisiveness and disaster and the latter can bring inclusion and innovation.
“I’m inspired by leaders who fearlessly speak truth to power.”
Sheema Khan was born in India and moved to Canada in the 1960s. She later earned a Masters in Physics and a Ph.D. in Chemical Physics at Harvard. She is a Scientist and a person of Faith, and she insists that these are mutually exclusive. Sheema is currently a Patent Agent with Shapiro Cohen LLP, and monthly columnist for the national Newspaper, the Globe and Mail. She Authored the book "Of Hockey and Hijab”, and her interests include hockey, soccer and feminism.
“Not being afraid of going against the grain at times is key.”
We first met Sheema during preparation of her 2016 TEDx Talk which deeply touched the audience and earned a long, powerful standing ovation. Not only is she a compelling speaker and writer, but Sheema has a unique and refreshing perspective on the Commonalities that we all share.
“We have much more in common in terms of human values, human dignity and aspirations. If we remember that, build toward that and help each other to achieve that, we will build a model society.”
Join us while we discuss Cultural Inclusion with this humble and brilliant thinker. It just may be the most inspiring 20 minutes that you will have all week.
