"My heart sank when I first heard about fertility benefits. It just seemed to me like another fix created to maintain business as usual. From the moment women entered the workforce they’ve been forced to fit into a box – let’s call it the business-world box – and as we all know, that box was created by men for men.” ~ Rúna Magnúsdóttir
PRESS RELEASE #NoMoreBoxes Breakfast Club
University of Wisconsin, Madison - August 2019
"The content was intriguing, but even more so, our conversation - which was guided by the premise of no more boxes.
Spreading this message will continue to challenge all in our society to self-reflect in our personal lives and to be conscious of our interactions with one another. In doing so, I strongly believe No More Boxes will contribute to a more just world. The dialogue helps influence how we relate to one another and encourages us to be more conscious of what we say and do."

“Runa Magnúsdóttir and Nicholas Haines encourage us to rethink the labels we give ourselves; I’m just a mum’, I’m not creative’, I’m unfit’, I’m quiet’, I’m responsible’ “When you raise your self-awareness, you build a world where you are accepted for who you are; where everyone has freedom to be themselves, unlimited by classifications that don’t serve us.
Doing this has boosted my self-confidence. I feel I have explored who I am and what I stand for, and have become more fluid in other areas of my life”

“The boxes are consistently placing our focus on what is separating us as human beings, when we should be focusing on what unites us”

The Kindness Podcast
Leaving a box that is no longer serving you, requires you to be kind to yourself first.

I AM WOMAN PODCAST
“We, women got to be careful not to stereotype ourselves just because we are women. Both men and women have all sorts of qualities. Equality does not come by claiming that all women are this… and all men are that”
Rúna Magnúsdóttir CEO The Change Makers with Catherine Plano, April 3rd 2019

“Placing ourselves and others into boxes isn’t something that came from our parents or family. It’s been there from the beginning of time and therefore no wonder it’s a hard wired programme that we are all playing as human beings.
- The question is; Although we are all hardwired to do this, is this programming serving us as a collective?
Our answer is NO, it’s not serving us”

“In my case, I was dyslectic and in school they put me in the stupid box as they did in the 1960’s / 70’s. This led me to thinking I can’t write this book because I am stupid, as that is the box they have put me in.
However, when I removed myself from that block I was more than fine writing the book. Most of my time right now I spend writing as I love it. “
~ Nicholas Haines co-leader #NoMoreBoxes Movement

“Your box is there, in fact you are already in a layers of boxes. The question is; is your box, good, bad or an ugly one? Once you become aware, you can decide what you want to do with your box”

“As soon as we assign certain qualities, values or personality traits to a particular gender we either trap people in that way of thinking or create a divide between the genders. As a man I want the freedom to be uniquely me, rather than a preformed version of what a man is, and I know that many women feel the same.”

"Energy follows Focus. The danger of placing women in the 'Feminine Box' and men in the 'Masculine Box' is that we are creating an isolating and devising boxes, limiting humans to be the change they want to see in their world."
