IFTF Foresight Talks: Equity and Decolonization - Transformation at the Intersection of Aid, Policy, and Foresight
Institute for the Future will host humanitarian Aarathi Krishnan to discuss what it takes to design decolonial futures, and how to ensure the foresight methodologies we use are pluralistic, equitable and go beyond surface level rhetoric. We'll explore what it means to tangibly move from theory to practice to policy, and how to create tipping points of change on an ecosystem-wide level. Join us to learn what it takes to build foresight muscle from the ground up in a global organization.
