A More Resilient World? | Big questions on post-covid culture
2020 has forced the entire globe to rethink the most cardinal questions for humankind, triggered by chaos stirred by #COVID19. Our most basic habits – for instance, shake hands to greet someone – needed to be unlearned. So now, each pause to rethink a “normal” action or decision offers up a choice – do we make one driven by fear or #empathy.
This deck takes you through seven key shifts, organised by signals, underlying forces, and the resulting new dynamics of the world we live in. From new categories of language to the return of function over fashion and everything in between, whether you design services, make products, manage a team or simply are curious about how people live, work and play – there’s something in here for you.
A voluntary collaboration with with three other brilliant female strategists from across the globe: Amy Brown, Rica Facundo, Avery Schiffman.

Lie Unselfishly to Advance Your Creativity
An Op-ed on the hidden value of untruths at work.
If lying is unavoidably human, color it with compassion. Intention drives impact, so account for intention in understanding the behaviors and culture of untruths. But always lead with the impact. If we must, let’s lie to help ourselves and others, and to create a better world—just don’t ignore the behavior or its influence.

S.H.E. has the Power to Transform
Cultural stereotypes have taught search engine algorithms to become biased. So we created S.H.E. – Search. Human. Equalizer – the world’s first equal search engine. S.H.E. is a Google Chrome extension that recognises the bias and neutralizes the results right before your eyes so you can see what a world with less bias could look like.
Spotlight the problem so women (and people) everywhere can help correct it and transform the world for the better.
When more people click on unbiased search results, they help impact future results for all. This will give women’s’ transformations the visibility they deserve.
In less than 24 hours S.H.E. maximised coverage with over 272M impressions reaching every 1 in 4 women.
1 in 4 people who visited the chrome store from the website, installed the S.H.E. extension to experience equalized search results.
