Through a growing body of work, the Unstoppable Together program creates the raw materials for storytelling: extensive research about tough topics, discussion guides and book selections to expand our thinking, and a podcast series that explores these topics through narrative. This wealth of resources enables people to enter this journey at their own pace, along a continuum of exploration that positions them to learn from a safe place and eventually share their own stories. The tales that result are about grit, resilience, allyship and more intense emotions —everything from joy and gratitude to frustration, sadness, guilt, and anger. Exploring these universal emotions guides us past judgment into empathy, grows our resilience, and emboldens us to be more vulnerable.
As Maya Angelou so wisely said, “do the best you can until you know better; and when you know better, do better” and that’s exactly what we want to do next. By launching the Unstoppable Together Movement, we’re building a coalition of partner organizations and dedicated activists to learn from collections of stories and identify, and ultimately work to solve, some the toughest challenges causing and perpetuating inequities around the globe.
When we say we are “unstoppable together,” this is what we mean. Working together —across companies, communities, industries, and cultures—is what makes us truly unstoppable.
