Boxes appear for many reasons. They give us a feeling of safety and belonging; for example by being part of a certain religion or interest group. They also help us to bond and align, and enjoy connection.

Boxes help us make sense of the world, even though they might not be beneficial. When we believe we know how genders, religion, races, and political parties (just to name a few) are supposed to be, we feelgrounded and safe. Unfortunately, putting others and ourselves in boxes often brings generalization and judgment with it.

Uncertainty – about the future, about ourselves – looms large in the collective consciousness of humanity.

All of the ‘should’s’ you might have been telling yourself you should do, have, be.

I don’t think we can stop making assumptions or as I see it, ‘placing people into Boxes’. What we can do is be aware of the boxes are placing ourselves and others into. There are good boxes, there are bad boxes, and there are simply ugly boxes. Awareness is the key.

#NoMoreBoxes Breakfast Club
Icelandic Embassy, London -september 2018

Icelandic Embassy

“Iceland is very proactive in its approach to gender equality, both through the legislative process and government intervention and as such – although there is a way to go – we have made great progress.

However, attending a #NoMoreBoxes Breakfast Club has highlighted to me the importance of non- judgemental face to face dialogue and discussions. The #NoMoreBoxes Breakfast Club concept will without a doubt break down many barriers that are required to move us all forward in this area.”
— Ambassador, Stefan Haukur Jóhannesson



We believe that change comes from within. So you have to, as an individual, think about what you can do. We all can change, and we all can influence. Believe that you can become the change, and that little changes can mean a lot.
