How We Do It

We make decisions based on data and evidence, not assumptions. At the Lab, we help companies:

  • Understand and prioritize their data;
  • Use their data to find signals within the noise;
  • Spot trends to identify emerging risk;
  • Visualize their data so insights are instantly accessible; and
  • Use their data to tell stories about culture and risk.

People are complex; and we are shaped by the cultural contexts in which we are immersed. We use insights from the social sciences to help our clients:

  • Assess culture and equity using quantitative and qualitative methods;
  • Design user-centered solutions;
  • Measure whether culture and compliance initiatives are effective;
  • Train employees using cutting edge methods to ensure adult learners understand and retain information; and
  • Shift behaviors to foster compliant and inclusive workplaces.

At the core of everything we do is a commitment to creativity and curiosity. The Lab consists of a diverse group of artists, scholars, and thinkers (some of whom just happen to be lawyers); and we think outside of the traditional boxes in our search for better ways.
