Welcome to Unraveling Pink, where we invite men and women into conversation to tackle gender-based assumptions (or “pink bandana moments”) head-on. Through discussion, assumptions can be broken down, leaving individuals to interact openly with each other. Join us by listening in to our podcast guests, submitting questions about your pink bandana moments, offering suggestions for how you would handle the pink bandana moments discussed on our show (tweet them to @UnravelingPink or tag them #pinkbandanamoments), and start a conversation at work.
This is not about complaining or pointing fingers – it’s about progress and empathy and understanding both sides of the assumptions we make. I hope you’ll join us. Together, we can unravel the pink bandana!
Our guests issue challenges designed to reduce pink bandana moments. We hope you will join the challenges and share your experience by tweeting them to @UnravelingPink or #PinkBandanaMoments or submitting them on our Contact page.
