The Social Impact Lab brings together
people, practice, and place to solve
today’s social problems.
Our team of dedicated strategists, architects, service designers, and researchers take a growth mindset and create trusting environments for participants to dive into complex problems and learn new skills that can be used in their own personal and professional lives.
The Lab creates opportunities, learning, and social impact through a comprehensive and collaborative methodology. We blend human-centered design and systems-thinking to foster intuitive and analytical insights in order to inspire ideas and hypotheses that are modelled and tested.
our process is about iterative innovation.
We listen by identifying context, synthesizing data, and qualifying opportunities.
We generate and test ideas against the lenses of desirability, viability, and feasibility.
We provide direction to scale solutions into system-level changes. In the spirit of learning and iteration, we move between these three modes freely and frequently.
The Social Impact Lab space sets the stage for the overall experience and needs to support the innovation process, while also influencing culture through the use of technology, tools, and physical environment. The right kind of space encourages curiosity, experimentation, and collaboration. The lab is designed to support creativity and innovation.
