Latinx/Hispanic Youth on the Horizon
by Gratzia Villarroel, Ph.D.

When I took my Foresight Analysis training in 2019, Casa ALBA Melanie had been working for more than seven years to nurture the well-being and wholesome development of Green Bay's Hispanic community. My new task was to learn how to scan the horizon, analyzing sociological, economic, environmental and other predictive signals about the future of this segment of the Greater Green Bay community.

COVID 19 has accelerated the emergence of new occupations.
Educators hope to "future-proof" the ability to do newly emerging jobs. Research by the McKinsey Global Institute has examined the type of high-level skills that will become increasingly important as a result of automation, AI and robotics.

Caroline Criado Perez, in her new book, shows how a “gender data gap” costs money, degrades public health and encourages discrimination. Pervasive male-default thinking makes "female" a niche identity. I recommend the book.
