Alex on the Future

I hope to help people expand their sense of the present, get in touch with their inner futurist, embrace creativity, and gain skills in strategic foresight.

Meet Alex

Alexandra Whittington is a futurist educator, writer, and researcher who believes that foresight is best applied through partnership and cooperation. She has earned recognition as one of the world’s top women futurists while teaching at the University of Houston, where her students describe her as “passionate” about the future. Alex has published widely on futuristic topics, often from a feminist perspective. She gives audiences a relatable overview of futurology through engaging live and online speeches, interviews, education sessions, and workshops.
