A cultural swirl is an open system with diverse participants that, in its inclusion of different ways of knowing and sensing and solving, seeks out encounters with serendipity. It offers tools and frameworks to cultivate diversity and collaboration within your teams. Drawing from her own research on global digital makers and users, Dr. Maaxa illustrates examples of cultural swirl that have led to groundbreaking innovation.
