We often talk about diversifying our networks. The truth is, many people don’t think it’s possible. We’re set in our ways, our friend groups, our routines, our neighborhoods. The way we walk through this world is so ingrained in us that when conversations around diversity come up, you’ll hear people say, “Well, it IS Minnesota.” Predominantly white spaces exist not simply because this is Minnesota. It’s because we live in a city that was designed to keep people divided — physically, culturally, ideologically.

To break down the barriers of division, complacency, and denial, Pollen’s first event of 2019 will bring together community leaders who are dismantling systems of oppression that lead to the invisible lines that pervade our city. Grounded in the contextual history of these systems, we’ll then explore what meaningful actions we can take to build relationships across that which divides us.

About Unraveled Network

If there’s one thing Pollenites know how to do, it’s how to nurture a thriving ecosystem of relationships, connections, and collaborative circles. Unraveled Network is an ongoing series hosted by Pollen that aims to better understand our inner habits and intentional actions that determine how diverse, robust, or ineffective our networks really are.
