Building Perfect Teams... The idea for UNITYtalks was born from a belief that vulnerable, genuine, and self-aware dialogue is at the center of human progress. We debate major issues by creating a space where individuals may convey their beliefs without fear.

Respect is one of our core values and we know that saying something meaningful often means being willing to say something others perceive as offensive. This is the reason for our "debate towards the middle" philosophy. Through healthy conflict, we're working to achieve harmony.

    2022.10.25 Lessons Learned - Debating To The Center

    2022.10.25 Lessons Learned - Debating To The Center

    Kalil and Armon made their first reaction video for this one. They chose a lecture by Dr. Jordan Peterson which embodies the principle rule of UNITYtalks Debates:

    "Before disagreeing with someone, you must summarize their point to THEIR satisfaction."

    It's become a staple for us, and it was very interesting to see their reaction to this lecture.

    2022.10.29 Are Leaders Born Or Are They Made

    The amazing Dr. Malik joined Kalil an Armon to talk about how society creates leaders. Arguably not a "debate", this talk was an incredible exploration into the experiences of our 29.5 year old friend, mentor, and visionary. Kalil and Dr. Malik recounted tales of their time at University where he heralded her as one of his most influential professors. Armon clearly jealous the entire time.

    Enjoy the talk, team!

    Question for the comments: Are leaders born or made?

    Is America STILL Racist

    Is America STILL Racist

    Without spoiling too much, we had the same answer to this question. The "why", however, that was a very deep rabbit hole with many dissenting opinions. Join us for an exploration of our humanity, our nature, and an generational question which still plagues us today.

    Once you add your thoughts to the chat, there's only one question left: What do we do about it?

    The DEATH Of The American Dream

    The DEATH Of The American Dream

    Imagine this... You're 8 years old and your family says "let's go". This is no ordinary trip to the grocery store, it's the departure from everything you've ever known. Why would anyone do that? #hope

    Gina, Kalil and Armon joined each to answer a simple question: Is the American Dream dead?

    What happened was a series of discussions to include: What even is the American dream in 2022?

    Is the dream dead? What do you think? Thumbs up for alive, and thumbs down for dead.

    2022.08.21 I Have A Dream V We Have A Dream

    2022.08.21 I Have A Dream V We Have A Dream

    Do we give leaders too much credit? Is it the visionary or the team that really brings a vision to reality? How do we go about rewarding those who are a part of the mission?

    This is one of our first talks that truly felt like a debate. Jaia (The Optimist) kept us looking at the bright side. Kalil seems to have a metaphor for everything. Armon says in 100 words what could be said in 20.

    Hosted by Nadia, who has the impossible task of keeping everyone on track.

    Enjoy!

    Leadership Series - Cancel Culture And The Plight Of Brittney Griner

    Leadership Series - Cancel Culture And The Plight Of Brittney Griner

    Is cancel culture the cure or a new disease? Kalil and Armon go back and forth on that one, but one thing they both agree on... Brittney Griner is using the big CC to her advantage. There are many rabbit holes in this talk on #Accountability #Fear #Progress and #Leadership.
