ScaleUpNation Book Club: Summer reads 2020
Summer 2020 was definitely a strange one. But despite all that is going on in the world, one habit remained the same – taking advantage of the long summer days to catch up on reading. We asked our team which books made an impression on them in the past couple of months. Here are their recommendations:
Our digital marketer Marta dived into Invisible Women, an in-depth investigation of how data collection regularly fails to take into account gender. It points out that the overwhelming majority of the world’s decision makers are male, which reflects in how systems often neglect the specific needs of women. The author provides several examples of the consequences of that bias on women’s daily lives, health, and even urban planning. It’s definitely a provocative read, which will make you think about what other biases go unnoticed in our day-to-day lives.
