Maggie Wooll

Managing Editor

Maggie is a researcher, author, and speaker focused on the evolving future of work and the new practices needed for organizations and people to thrive in a rapidly-changing, tech-mediated world. Maggie formerly led research at the Deloitte Center for the Edge. She is passionate about creating better work and greater opportunity for all.

Maggie lives in the San Francisco Bay area but never quite shook the dust of her western Colorado roots. Two school-aged sons mean there's never a dull moment, or a quiet one. She is always working on focus. Having failed to become the next great American novelist, she favors fiction and rereads The Martian Chronicles every year or so.
