In Radicalize the Hive we outline what honey bees, a “super-organism”, can teach us about building generative social systems. The work includes discussion on building collaborative groups or communities through setting group terms, sharing power, building collective understanding, and shaping consensus while being compassionate with ourselves.
Ang Roell (they/them) runs two parallel businesses the first, They Keep Bees is a femme run apiary co-located in Western Massachusetts and South Florida that raises queen bees and produces honeycomb. In the second business Ang Roell Consulting is committed to helping clients make the changes necessary to shift organizational culture & practice from a model of dominant power to a model of cooperative power, inspired by the ecological world.
Ang holds a Masters of Science in SocialJustice Education from Boston University, and teaches courses in both university and community settings. They are a seasoned public speaker, and educator. They are currently working on a book titled, “Radicalize the Hive”, and recently completed their first TedX lecture titled “What Honey Bees Can Teach Us About Building Successful Collaboration”.
