List of the world's top female futurists (Updated) -

Thank you for for your help building out the list!] I find I am frequently asked where all the female futurists are. Recently the discussion on why the profession of futurist appears to be so male-dominated has grown. I know many outstanding female futurists, so whenever I am asked I point to a range of exceptional futurists to show that there are indeed many women in the field. However it is true that many are not as well known as they should be. As such I thought it would be useful to compile a list of the world’s top female futurists, for those who are looking for diversity in their insights into the future.

It is tricky defining a futurist, so while we have largely selected those who describe themselves as working in this space, we have also included others whose work is largely that of exploring the future.

Futurism Needs More Women

That’s the story, at least. And as part of that long-running narrative, Facebook just launched its virtual assistant. They’re calling it Moneypenny—the secretary from the James Bond Films. Which means the symbol of our march forward, once again, ends up being a nod back. JFS19-4-Article3-Novaky-Orosz.pdf. The Next 20 Years: A Time of Transformation. Future of identity. The Chinese Generation’s Social Context: 6 Big Shifts. There are six major social shifts in Chinese society that will make all of China’s generations dynamic for the foreseeable future.

The Chinese Generation’s Social Context: 6 Big Shifts

These shifts are creating fault lines in the Chinese social landscape and rapid change in the values and attitudes within each of China’s generations. Yet, overall social change will unfold in uneven and surprising ways. Adoption of new ideas and identities will require difficult mindset shifts for every Chinese person, and will impact each generation at different rates and times. The 6 Shifts These 6 major shifts are creating fault lines in China’s social landscape, particularly in urban areas and transitional rural villages: 1. Under communism, lifestyles were undifferentiated, shaped and guided by the political elite and by popular media. 2.

In 1949, China’s average lifespan was 42 years, and most women gave birth to more than five children. 3. 4. China’s communist government was traditionally responsible for the people’s total welfare.

Hinesight....for Foresight

Early in my consulting career, working with Coates & Jarratt, Inc., I was surprised by how often our client loved our work, but did not know what to do with it internally. I spent almost a decade working inside two Fortune 500 companies in order to see for myself, and recently wrote my dissertation on the topic. At the recent APF Professional Development Seminar, I had a few minutes to summarize some “lessons learned” in applying foresight. Dr Popper's Foresight & Horizon Scanning Blog.

Future Planet – The Future of Services

The Director of the Future Planet Research Centre, David Hunter Tow, predicts that the current explosion of new services will trigger the biggest IP treasure hunt in the history of civilisation. The Services Sector is currently in turmoil with thousands of startup companies cashing in on new opportunities to re-engineer traditional ways of doing business- and this is just the beginning. Every process is currently being transformed into a new service- not just in traditional service sectors such as retail, media, education, healthcare, tourism and finance, but also in industry areas such as manufacturing- with made to order 3D printing techniques, medical processing- offering personalised DNA sequencing and diagnostics instantly on an iPhone chip, and inexpensive solar energy and water purification systems cheaply available for domestic use in developing countries.
