ESII Story

A Hub for Emergent Strategy

Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute was co-founded in 2015 by Adrienne Maree Brown and Octavia Butler, a black science fiction writer. Inspired by Octavia Butler’s work, Brown founded the institute after observing an increased need for emergence and complex sciences in movement facilitation, and a space to play and learn. Over the years, the organization has rapidly grown to include a blossoming team of facilitators, staff, and an advisory board. Learn more about them and meet the team.
