WE WILL BE JOINED AT OUR 2018 STUDENT CONFERENCE BY THE #UNFILTEREDNETWORK, A SOCIAL MEDIA INITIATIVE AIMED AT LOOKING PAST SUPERFICIAL LABELS, CREATED BY HARVARD BASKETBALL ALUMNUS ZENA EDOSOMAWAN AND HIS TEAM.
Too often in our society, people make longstanding character judgments regarding others without ever taking the time to truly understand them or their point of view. We often allow superficial conversations and lazy labels that lack true substance, to serve as a barometer for our opinions of the people around us. These quick judgement, made without understanding and unraveling the many layers that form the complex individuals who we interact with each day, are problematic. The Harvard #Unfiltered project aims to address this issue by looking past these superficial labels and digging beneath the surface, to get a better understanding of the intricate identities of the students on our campus.
