Coming Up: Inclusive Innovation
Print and ebook available Summer 2022
Innovation offers potential: to cure diseases, to better connect people, and to make the way we live and work more efficient and enjoyable. At the same time, innovation can fuel inequality, decimate livelihoods, and harm mental health. This book contends that inclusive innovation - innovation motivated by environmental and social aims - is able to uplift the benefits of innovation while reducing its harms. You can see more about the backend of our research here inclusiveinnovation.io
Note, no payment nor any financial gain from the proceeds of this book go to myself or other coauthors. So this has been a volunteer endeavor as a fully academic book published by Routledge Press. We would like to thank our advisory review group of nearly 30 incredible practitioners and thought leaders whom are noted in the opening acknowledgements section as well.
