When I first started working at The GLBT Community Center of Colorado I was surprised by the restroom signs. Here at The Center we have single use restrooms on each floor, or what I grew up calling “unisex” restrooms. However, as you can see in the photo above, our restroom signs have been covered over with other signs listing each restroom as gender neutral, or for any person. Underneath these colorful signs are the original signs that say “men” and “women.” It wasn’t until I was researching my TEDx Talk topic last summer that I understood why the men’s and women’s signs were required to be installed. Denver building code rules previously required multiple one stall restrooms to be marked men’s and women’s. In other words, if a location had one single use restroom it could be marked gender neutral or unisex – but if it had two or more [...]
Last spring I attended a presentation where the presenter said something that has stuck in my mind since then. The presenter said that fear may be the most powerful and motivating emotion that humans experience. I have seen fear of the unknown, fear of change, and fear of those different than ourselves motivate us as humans to behave in ways we would not normally. This year, more than any other I have lived, there seems to be an atmosphere of fear of the “other” throughout our nation and communities. People have been pushed by circumstance and propaganda to opposing sides, with both sides misunderstanding the other.
In the more transparent age of the internet and social media consumers and employees are taking it upon themselves to become educated about the corporate citizenship of the companies they work for and purchase from. Social media has become a powerful tool of those wishing to share their findings to an increasingly focused network.
