What is open innovation and how can companies use it?

Innovation happened in a fairly linear fashion until the advancement of technology gave […]

How LSE shaped me and my career

Prior to pursuing the MSc in Organisational Behaviour at LSE, I worked at a global youth-run non-profit organisation where I had the opportunity to do a breadth of work in talent management and leadership. Through my work, I discovered my passion for psychology, leadership and HR – however, I knew I needed both the depth of knowledge as well […]

Why we need more women in technology

Did you know that women invented some of the most important technologies in modern day life? This includes the computer algorithm, wireless transmission technology, CCTV and the first user-friendly business software program, to mention a few.

So why are there so few women in technology? Let’s start off with some depressing statistics. Gender imbalance in IT is nothing new, but […]
