Is creativity misunderstood? Join the RSA Gender Equity Thematic Network, and author Natalie Nixon FRSA, to explore this very question.

Please be advised that the start time of this event has changed to 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 7pm BST.

Is creativity misunderstood? Natalie Nixon FRSA, has recently written The Creativity Leap which explores why toggling between wonder and rigor is an essential competency now in this 4th industrial revolution and within the context of the Future of Work ethos.

Natalie will be joining a panel with two other women that are spanning boundaries through their creativity leaps. With their experiences to ground us, we will engage with these questions:

  • Why do creativity leaps matter?
  • What do inquiry, intuition, and improvisation have to do with creativity in our work?
  • What role does community play in creativity?


Hosted by Octavia Goredema FRSA on behalf of the RSA’s Gender Equity Thematic Network, the panel will include the following speakers:

  • Maha Al-Emam | eCommerce and Media Executive
  • Natalie Nixon FRSA | Creativity Strategist and President of Figure 8 Thinking
  • Loren Segan | Screenwriter, Playwright and Director


Sarah Brooks FRSA will moderate the discussion. She is a Design Executive at IBM, leading an effort to improve product excellence across the company.



This event is taking place on Thursday, August 20th 2020 between:

  • 11 - Noon PDT
  • 2 - 3pm EDT
  • 7 - 8pm BST
