Work

The World Economic Forum

Envisioning futures of belonging

We developed and ran a yearlong project for the World Economic Forum examining what it means for their organization to design for belonging across North America, Europe and Asia. This included collectively diagnosing present day barriers to belonging, visioning work to imagine alternatives that overcome those barriers and developing tools to design for belonging across interpersonal, organizational and systemic scales. This work sets the foundation for their commitment to building equitable practices and policies in the everyday work of The Forum.

SwissLife

Anticipating the impacts of COVID-19

We worked with SwissLife to anticipate the impacts of COVID-19 on their organization and develop new practices to innovate in response. This development program lasted 6 months working alongside a leadership cohort to embed a futures thinking lens on how they made sense of and responded to their present challenges and opportunities. The work resulted in a set of key scenarios for leadership to consider, 14 innovation propositions to experiment with, and new foresight capabilities to leverage within the organization. This work was in partnership with WDHB.

Hermès

Inspiring their sustainability journey

We created a sustainability-led experience for Hermès to explore the past, present and future mindsets that can build more sustainable practices. These briefings unpacked alternative ways to think about materials use, business models, and engaging with communities to offer inspiration and frameworks that can catalyze new forms of experimentation. These briefings were delivered throughout the year at key global events within the company to support their design and communication strategies.
