She loves designing and leading events that provoke innovation: innovation workshops, leadership development programs, facilitator trainings, creative strategy sessions, hack-a-thons. She’s part of the facilitation team at Knowinnovation (KI), and head of its newest initiative, Inclusive Innovation, which uses the creative process to activate innovation within the field of economic development. Maggie has also been deeply involved in designing and facilitating the Africa Science Leadership Program (ASLP) and a similar program in Southeast Asia, the ASEAN-SLP, to inspire early- and mid-career scientists to explore and re-define what it means to be a science leader within their institutions, their countries and their regions. Her latest project: intense, immersive workshops designed to tackle the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Maggie is also a writer and blogger, and proud author of an unpublished manuscript. She is a member of the community of practitioners that grew out of the Creative Education Foundation (CEF) in Buffalo, NY, in the USA.
