Please note: This episode deals with gun violence.

In this episode, Sam and I explore the connection between the man box and gun violence and mass shootings. We hope this sparks some conversation about this difficult topic and, more importantly, that it encourages you to reach out to those in your life to check in with them.

#94 If You’re “Qualified,” You Make The List

Standard
Sam and I kick off the Fall 2019 season exploring what happened with the Forbe’s America’s 100 Most Innovative Leaders list, whether it truly reflects merit or, instead, historical privilege, and whether the “man box” had a role.

In this season, we’ll continue exploring how we all contribute to and are affected by the man box, and where it shows up in current events.

Let us know what you think!

#93 Nothing Is Impossible

Standard

In this final episode of the “man box” season, Sam and I reflect on the season – what it’s been like to sit across from someone of another gender and talk about gender issues – and we issue a challenge to all of you to do the same. We offer some suggestions based on our experience – our successes and failures – and close with Sam’s thoughts on what he’s learned from this experience. Enjoy!

Unraveling Pink will return in the Fall.
