At Emerging Women, we consider sponsors and partners members of our tribe just like presenters and attendees.
We seek out partners that feel aligned with our mission and our target audience; partners that will add value to our event and benefit from the exposure and connection to our Emerging Women circle.
Future State is a great example of this next-level partnership, and we wanted to let them introduce themselves to you here. Be sure to let us know if it leads to a prosperous connection!
We are Future State, a consulting firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area that supports some of the most important enterprises in the world in realizing their operational transformation. After learning of the 2013 Emerging Women Live conference we were immediately drawn in by the vision to “live the truth of who you are.” After attending the conference in Boulder, we knew how fortunate we were to find such like-minded, passionate women leading from a place of true authenticity.
As we partner with our clients to lead change in their organizations, we always look through the lens of our guiding principles: keeping people at the center, empathy for users, neutrality and visualizing complexity. We believe wholeheartedly in women leaders stepping into the fullness of their gifts — including among many other things collaboration, compassion and intuition. These qualities are not only good for business, but for a better world. We understand that the global business world as a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) environment needs the feminine perspective. The time has come to embrace, leverage and optimize business outcomes by being authentic agents of transformation-with women leading the way.
The trends and themes we see with our clients are all centered around building the strengths that must be emphasized to achieve: engaging employees, developing high potential millennials, working collaboratively across geographies to innovate, and meshing disparate cultures while preserving their integrity and recognizing their uniqueness. All this must happen while driving rapid adoption of massive transformation in a 24×7 environment. To be truly successful in the face of such complex business needs, it requires emotionally intelligent, authentic leaders who are prepared to lead people with courage, wisdom, humanity and resilience.
Whether we are partnered to build a global leadership program, optimize the drug development lifecycle, disseminate strategy throughout every layer of the enterprise or to integrate cultures as part of a merger, we are focused on the people. The people at the center, the people on the edges, the people impacted and the people with influence. We believe people are the key to realizing true, adaptable operational transformation. When the people in any organization are “living the truth of who they are,” as authentic leaders and a force for positive influence, transformation follows with tremendous business outcomes as the result. This is the work we are called to do. We believe this is the transformational work of our time on this planet. We are Future State.
We look forward to connecting with you in October.
