Beyond Categories: Entrepreneurship in Multiplicity & Myths in Intersection
Our culture is pushing back against labels and binaries, but boxed categories still persist.
About this event
Our culture is pushing back against labels and binaries, but boxed categories still persist: are you a ‘founder’, ‘organizer’, ‘in-tech’, 'social entrepreneur’ or ‘other’? Industry standards’ are lacking in their ability to encompass the hybrid narratives of who we are as people with purpose. The stereotypes (re)produced around people and their businesses as singularly aimed entities harm the organization’s culture on every level and seeps out into the mainstream- reinforcing misconceptions and myths.
To deconstruct and discuss this, Rea Eldem of IN-VISIBLE and Rhea Ramjohn of Black Brown Berlin host a panel of intersectional activators, Yolanda Rother of The Impact Company, Sanaz Azimipour of MigLoom e.V., and Nuwella D. Bruch of Ó WATER who are breaking the moulds and the mythology behind being ‘founders’, ‘social entrepreneurs’ and ‘community organizers’. To unbox all of this and cross over the categories in our community, join us for an evening of reconnecting and open-ended mingling with drinks in Factory Görlitzer Park’s courtyard.
