Innovation is not just about introducing something new. Innovation is about a mindset and about passion, all of which the Escient team has oodles of.
The South Australian team proudly launched their sponsorship of Women in Innovation this week. Women in Innovation is a not-for-profit membership group that exists solely to support female innovators in South Australia. Across every sector, for all types of work, this is an inclusive community for innovative women who strive to make a difference.
We are thrilled to join them as proud champions for women in business, bureaucracy and boardrooms, in labs, studios, libraries and on the land, and look forward to supporting the #womenininnovation awards in November.
Things kicked off in style at our Rulebreaker’s breakfast, on Tuesday 7 March in Adelaide. It was an opportunity to celebrate International Women’s Day, and included a thought provoking, interactive panel discussion on making space for innovation.
Guests gained valuable insights and knowledge from Emma Cole, Innovation Manager SAPN, Kerrie Campbell, Director Imagination Corporation, Allys Todd, Founder of ValAi and WINN Alumni in a panel hosted by Susie Jones of Escient on how to make space for innovation, individually and at scale.
There was opportunity to ask questions and network with other rulebreakers and rebels who are also keen to leverage innovation to help build a better future.
At Escient we choose as sustainable future. That means we avoid unnecessary waste, so no flyers or paper handouts – instead this ‘digital goodie bag’ was our gift to our guests.
