Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya is a Creative Director, Design Strategist and creator of Beyond Curie, a design project that highlights the rich history of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The idea behind Beyond Curie is to remind us all about women whose achievements in science, engineering and mathematics changed the world we live in today.
This design project has been recognized all over the world and Museeum's goal is to introduce you a wonderful woman behind it. We asked Amanda to curate this Reading List that we now share with you. This woman has a lot to say! Enjoy.
"These books have helped shape my strategic thinking, inspired me to create new work and purposefully approach projects and relationships with collaborators and colleagues in new ways."
To call out a few of them: "Power: Why Some Have It and Others Don’t" by Stanford professor Jeffrey Pfeffer, has given me incredible insights into how to leverage my skills, talent, and relationships to create work that matters. There is a fine line between creativity and chaos and because I feel that I often veer close to crossing that line, "Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Our Lives" by Tim Harford has been very self-affirming. I’ve also begun to read "Quiet: The Power of Introversion in a World that Can’t Stop Talking" by Susan Cain. As an introvert and former woman in science, I appreciate how she expertly weaves neuroscience, anecdotes, and advice on how to harness the power of being an introvert."
