What We Do

Creating inclusive teams, companies, products, and experiences


So, what’s a workforce design studio?

We’re so glad you asked. We’re experts building the workforce of the future, one in which skills and a growth mindset replace degrees and connections as signals for career potential.

How we get there is simple: we build really powerful content that taps into peoples’ existing skills from their lived experiences and nontraditional roles. Our approachable, unforgettable, and practical education honors existing knowledge as a key asset for transformational change.

Together, we elevate dynamic under-represented career builders to greater heights, so they can take on more challenging roles and, ultimately, bring their full selves onto the teams creating the future.


Matching Business Needs with Under-Represented Talent

We connect employers who deeply care about increasing representation to ambitious talent with lived experiences and intersections of identity.

Together, we create pathways of opportunity for under-represented career builders. And we build the practical tools, knowledge and networks to unlock potential — leading to more inclusively designed teams, companies, products and services.


Upskilling and Retaining Your Best Teammates

We help the teams of today become the growth catalysts of tomorrow through our custom experiential learning programming.

We don’t just teach skills, we uncover mindsets and durable behaviors that will enable your employees to evolve with your company’s needs.

Our unique approach amplifies employee engagement and drives collaboration across teams.

How can we help your current workforce power your future?


Leveling Up Your Target Product Users

You’re busy building world-changing products and services for globally diverse and multicultural users.

We’re here to empower your users to maximize your product benefits and become super users.

We don’t just create technically complex documentation. We're developing user-centered engaging and enriching content. We meet the user where they are and build foundations for lifelong learning as your product evolves.

We do things a little differently — and that’s how we drive differential outcomes

From our leadership to individual project teams, 
we intentionally reflect our learners’ lived experiences.

We infuse curriculum and experiences with learning science so teams can absorb and retain new skills — and immediately apply them.

We don't just teach your workforce theories and vague concepts. We tap into the way your team works today.

We amplify the value of specialists by bringing together the most relevant collaborators who work in industry.

We work as an extension of your team, from design to execution. Whatever works for you, we make it work.
