About the Innovation For All Podcast

Innovation For All features far-reaching conversations about hard problems and big ideas at the intersection of innovation and social impact. Want to know whether Artificial Intelligence is racist? What it feels like to be a conservative working in tech? How Artificial Reality can help the hard-of-hearing? Whether implicit bias training is effective? This is the podcast for you.

Dr. Sheana Ahlqvist applies a background in social psychology and entrepreneurship to stir up entirely new conversations on how the two interact.

The Audience

The audience is educated, curious people who are open to considering new points of view. They watch TED talks for fun and support social justice causes. They are interested in business, entrepreneurship, or technology, but may not be experts themselves. They are interested in how innovation impacts people, either through the social systems it creates, who is helped by a big idea, or who gets left behind.
