The new field of social entrepreneurship is ideally suited to women, who have always had to meet complex demands that pit community against individualism...

Level343's curator insight, December 3, 2014 11:22 AM

The question is, why are we finding so many women in this field – and are they really capable of leading the charge? 

 

 

An alignment between women in leadership and women as consumers has been underway for some time. We’re no longer a niche market, and that change is reflected in evolving occupational roles as well — think Sheryl Sandberg. Meanwhile, our evolution as players in social entrepreneurship can be traced to the not-so-distant past. Women always worked in social occupations (teachers, nurses, mothers), but the more ambitious women of the Mad Men-era emerged as leaders in community societies and volunteer organizations.

Women And Collective Intelligence Will Solve Our Planetary Crises

Women And Collective Intelligence Will Solve Our Planetary Crises | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Sustainability is a so-called wicked problem. It is complex, difficult to define, impossible to solve in a linear fashion and the aspects of the problem are so interrelated that it is impossible to consider (and therefore impossible to model) all of the unintended consequences that might accompany any single “solution.”

70% Of Iran's Science And Engineering Students Are Women

70% Of Iran's Science And Engineering Students Are Women | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The common myth about women in Iran is that they are seen, but not heard, that they’re not permitted to drive, that they are second-class citizens, and that entrepreneurship and positions of power are out of reach. These notions are wrong. For years, women in Iran have owned and managed businesses, many of them in male dominant industries like oil and gas, construction, mining, and now tech. And now, with such a high number graduating with degrees in science and engineering, there’s a push to get women more involved in Iran’s blossoming startup scene.

Why I am stepping out of the debate on women in technology

Why I am stepping out of the debate on women in technology | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I started advocating for women in engineering in 2006 when my dean at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering, Kristina Johnson, made me aware of the declining numbers of women entering the field. As a former tech entrepreneur, I found the situation alarming. I had spent the last few years researching how education, immigration, and entrepreneurship drive innovation. The fact that half of our population was being left out of the fields most important to our future seemed deeply wrong to me.
