Dima Ghawi discusses the benefits and pitfalls of corporate diversity, equality and meritocracy, victimology, women’s leadership, and surviving being targeted for an “honor killing” by her own father. This fascinating, dynamic middle eastern woman’s story is an inspiration to women and men worldwide. Her bravery has lead to multiple Ted Talks, seminars, speeches and commencement addresses. Dima’s new book is Breaking Vases: Shattering Limitations & Daring to Thrive: A Middle Eastern Woman’s Story.

    This is a wonderful interview. For those Ricochetti who don’t know, honor killings also happen in Sikh communities. However, I must notice that honor killing happen in Christian and Sikh communities that have lived next door to Muslims for at least a century or two. To my knowledge, Christians in Latin America, China and the non-Muslims parts of Asia don’t commit honor killings like Arabic-Christians and Sikhs do. If I am wrong, please correct me.

    Very interesting lady. I kept wondering during the interview whether she had any children. Today’s young women seem to think they can have it all with flexible hours, etc., but I’ve noticed with my own children that is a fantasy. Something has to give as there are only so many hours in a day. Hence, we are seeing fewer children being born, especially to professional women.

    I hope she adopts then. She has good people skills for mom-stuff.
