A collection of compelling conversations with Nancy Giordano and the thoughtful women actively shaping our world.

Let me introduce you to the Femme Futurists

The genesis of this collection is a recent Forbes article listing 50 leading female futurists, which then prompted us to go bigger and include other women, also out there shaping the future. Our aim is to interview all of the people you see here and to share these provocative and inspiring conversations with you, because now that the world has been shaken awake, we have the invitation and new tools to play so much bigger. Instead of retrenching in fear, what happens when we redesign with confidence, care and a lot more curiosity? Let’s learn together.

We will be sharing new interviews weekly. Please spread the word. And we appreciate your constructive feedback, curious questions and nominations of more visionary women (scroll to the bottom to submit). While there is a lot of work to do ahead, together our potential has never been greater.
