Sherin Khankan


Sherin is the author of four books and a cognitive therapist. The BBC named her one of the most influential women of 2016. She has made it a personal mission to fight norms and prejudices. Working in the crossfire of gender and religion, Sherin advocates for Islamic feminism.

Britt Wray

Science Storyteller

Originally from Canada, Wray has been a producer and presenter on several radio and podcast productions, namely for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and New York Public Radio. She is the creator of a forthcoming interactive documentary series about personal genomics produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

At Made in Space we present three women whose individual practices contribute to a better future. Each speaker uniquely combines ethics and utopian thinking in her work, and thrives in a traditionally male-dominated space. Religion. Tech. Science. While that combination may sound unconventional, our speakers’ three key areas of expertise will converge to crush prejudices and help the audience envision a more equal, progressive and bold future.
