MPA continues to champion D&I with focus on our next generation

By Kai Ojo, MD of Planisware and MPA D&I Lead The events following the EURO 2020 Finals and the Formula 1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone put a much needed spotlight on the gap between perception and reality on the topic of systemic racism in our society.  Every now and then, there is a feeling of ‘progress’ or at least a perception of progress.  But the way in which Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho and Lewis Hamilton were treated left me wondering about a lot of things; how much more has to be done and who needs to do [...]

MPA Blog Share: ‘Zig-zagging towards the workplace of the future’

By Alex Heywood, Co-Founder, 4and20million THE ILLUSION OF BINARY CHOICES Our world appears to be full of binary choices. Some real, some manufactured. No matter the topic, we tend to distil our most complex challenges into a set of simplistic alternatives. Once our choices have been made, we stick with them unwaveringly and resolutely. Changing your mind is, after all, an unforgivable weakness. Tribalism is rife. We’re experiencing the footballification of the everyday: Partisan politics, manufactured cultural conflicts. The need to be seen to ‘have an opinion’ and wholeheartedly agree or disagree on any given topic, however ill-informed or half-baked [...]
