The focus of the Women Inventors and Innovators Mural is subtle, powerful and essential for our evolutionary times. Through illuminating the drivers of success and resilience that have enabled women to help change the world over the last 100-plus years–often against great odds–our goal is to help accelerate the necessary shift to a more balanced and equitable world, furthering innovation important for meaningful societal advancement and planetary wellness.
This project of the NextNow Collaboratory leverages our hallmark approach to complex problems: Making the Invisible Visible™ through the visualization of complex information via large murals that show events and ideas in a single big picture, enabling us to perceive key patterns and relationships and identify new solutions.
At a time when women are coming to the fore globally, we’re telling new stories in novel ways, speeding our progress toward the long-overdue goal of giving women equal influence and voice on our planet. Recently featured in the Royal Society for the Arts news, the Women’s Inventors and Innovators project has the following unique elements:
- An interactive online 100-year timeline of women’s accomplishments
- 3D immersive gallery
- Stories that give a deep perspective into the lives, motivations and triumphs of these women
- A backend database that links the stories of these women with a massive global library, intricately mapping their lives and accomplishments into history
- New categories for accomplishments that focus on impact rather than discipline
For NextNow Collaboratory, this is an extension of our work with Dr. Doug Engelbart and his vision for Raising Collective IQ through Co-Evolution of Culture and Technology. We have already made discoveries about how we can expedite culture shifts that will enable women to have more equitable influence and impact on our planet.
