SIX CHARACTERISTICS YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE WORLD BY RUTH MORGAN
To be a change maker of tomorrow, we need to be change makers today, and yet it has also been said that ‘if you can’t see it, you can’t be it’. The Falling Walls Female Science Talents programme is taking this challenge on in creative and exciting ways, and it has been brilliant to be a part of the International Spring Gathering of their intensive track science talents. The meeting brought together science leaders of today and the future from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds. During our time together we had opportunities to reflect, challenge, engage and grow a network of science talents who are working to change the world today, and who will be leading the charge in the future. I had the honour of moderating two days of fascinating conversation, hearing from an incredible line up of speakers from academia, industry and multinational corporations. I am not only inspired, I am also even more optimistic as I look forward.
Our theme for our two days together was gendered research and innovation. Click on the tiles below to read more about the six reflections from those conversations of what it takes to be an inspirational change maker:
