We did the analytics and have the data to show that the English-speaking futures/foresight industry skews:
This is a sliver of the world's population and does not represent the world's diversity, and yet this is the profile of the loudest and most influential voices in foresight/futures who are shaping all of our futures.
History has been written by a handful of people and it appears our future is also being written by a handful of people.
We're curious about what the future looks like if the people analyzing the signals and futures data were more diverse. What does 2030 look like if the humans doing the foresight represent a spectrum of ages, races, socio-economics, cultures, genders, geographies, ideologies, vocations, and the edges of society.
WE'RE MAKING TOMORROWING MORE DIVERSE, INCLUSIVE & EQUITABLE:
white + BIPOC. rural + urban. developed + emerging markets. rich + poor. liberal + conservative. creative + analytical. introvert + extrovert. cognitively impaired + gifted. able-bodied + disabled. free + incarcerated. religious + atheist. healthy + sick... and so on.
We’re building a GLOBAL NETWORK OF DIVERSE FUTURISTS (inviting new and diverse voices to participate in foresight) to create a more representative and equitable vision of our world in 2030 and beyond.
