Leah Zaidi

Senior Foresight Associate


Leah Zaidi is a Senior Foresight Associate at the Future Today Institute, with specializations in systems thinking, complexity, organizational change management, world-building and speculative design. 

In 2018, Zaidi's research was recognized as one of the Most Significant Futures Work of 2017 by the Association of Professional Futurists. Her paper examined the worldbuilding practices of science fiction authors, from which she derived a foresight model that can be used to deconstruct and reconstruct complex problems and design preferred future states. Part of her practice includes creating experiential futures (situations and artefacts from the future) to help stakeholders understand the implications of complex emerging issues. Leah is also an Associate Editor of the World Futures Review.
