Strategic thinking can be a valuable skill, both in business and your personal life. Strategic thinking refers to the ability to think about, assess, evaluate and arrive at decisions about the future. It is, in fact, the way in which you use your thinking and would, therefore, be classified as a critical thinking skill.Continue reading Evaluate Your Strategic Thinking

Innovation Lead example of an Innovation Career Path
On paper, my career journey looks quite erratic… But the theme running through all of my choices has been experimentation. I like to try new things that haven’t been done before. Whether that was literally experimenting in a laboratory. Or trialling different data sets to see which has the most impact.
Innovation Career Opportunities
Having more women, more people of colour, more people from different backgrounds, isn’t charity. Companies aren’t pushing diversity & inclusion initiatives just because it’s the right thing to do. They’re doing it because it makes good financial sense. I’m excited that this is a big focus for organisations everywhere. It will lead to lots more opportunities for a broader range of people. Plus, better products and services that reflect the consumers they serve.
Qualifications for Innovation Careers
Having on-the-job experience is incredibly valuable. I’m a huge proponent of schemes like apprenticeships. They give you the opportunity to work and study. There are definitely opportunities for women entrepreneurs in the field where I work; in fact, there are opportunities for women entrepreneurs in every field.
I’m excited that the value that diversity (of all kinds) is being recognised as having a major impact on the bottom line for businesses. Having more women, more people of colour, more people from different backgrounds, isn’t charity; companies aren’t pushing diversity & inclusion initiatives just because it’s the right thing to do (although it certainly is), they’re doing it because it makes good financial sense. I’m excited that this is a big focus for organisations everywhere and think it will lead to lots more opportunities for a broader range of people, as well as better products and services that reflect the consumers they serve.

Your STEM career resilience is a major determinant of your STEM career success.
Your career can be described as a series of jobs that are related to each other and which grow in complexity. Consequently, making educational and career choices are not once-off processes because both jobs and people evolve. For this reason, making these choices should not be seen as an all-or-nothing decision, but rather part of an evolving process. Therefore measuring your career success to a certain job or role would be pointless.Continue reading What’s your STEM career resilience?
