Ignorance Leads to Opportunity: Assume Less. Ask More.


An offical part of the SXSW International Women’s Day Celebration.

Women are superheroes but we can also be ignorant. Ignorance is all around us and permeates all aspects of our human interaction. Today's culture rewards and encourages tribes of community but the more we are entrenched in our tribes, the more ignorant we become of others. More and more we are assuming and assigning attributes to people based on gender, race, religion, and class to name a few. These assumptions affect how we interact, hire, date, love, engage and display our humanity. The time is NOW for us to ask more questions and learn more about who we are as women and human beings.
