Enactlab works with and for people to create the agency to change and then solve the structural problems of society.
We call this
Who we are
Enactlab is a group of like-spirited people who all want to make the world a place where we can all live and thrive no matter who we are.
We are a motley crew of both researchers, consultants, artists, and activists, but we all share the same sense of urgency. We want to act now.
Enact:lab are two thing:
Enact: A Social Sustainable Consultancy, helping companies, organisations solving some of the pressing structural challenges that they face.
Lab: a world leading lab for research in sustainable change, working closely with leading universities and institutions globally to develop and translate new knowledge into practice.
Our unique approach combines in depth research in structural problems with practical translation and implementation of the research into social sustainable solutions.
We are not a traditional consultancy or lab. Enactlab is founded on the idea of creating change with and for people. We don ́t work for profit, but to create a financial sustainable company. All our future profits
are re-invested in the company.
MEET the team
In Enact we are specialists in creating sustainable change. By sustainable we mean changes that makes sense to people and continue to live on even when the bright lights are turned off and all the attention is gone. Because the sad reality is that up to 70% of all change initiatives don ́t deliver on the intended change. On the contrary it often does the exact opposite: Add more frustrations, because of over-promising and under-delivering. Our method is our key to unlock the potential in corporations and organizations for sustainable change.
We help companies and organisations build capabilities within a number of areas, ie.: DEI strategy and policies, Co-Creation processes – top-down/bottom-up, Diversity & Innovation, Equal Opportunities and Leaderships/management training.
We combine state of the art scientific research with a deep knowledge of organizations and the culture that defines these. We are specialists in creating agency, community building, social dynamics and what constitutes a social sustainable culture.
In our Lab we conduct long-term research projects that leads to new knowledge on solving structural problems. But even more importantly, our Lab is where we turn knowledge and research into appliable and practical tools and actions to make change.
We believe in Open Science, knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary processes that cut across professional siloes. We therefore work with an underlining notion of open innovation where we work in collaboration with our target groups, clients, stakeholders, etc. To explore and co-create the actions and solutions that will make the changes sustainable.
01 DEI – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
How can we enact companies and organizations, to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive?
02 Wellbeing – Physical and mental
How can we enact corporations and organization, e.g., within healthcare and the tech and media industry, to center their solutions around the health, agency and lived experience of patients, employees and users?
Climate and environment
How can we enact corporations and organizations, to promote climate and environmentally sustainable actions for both their employees, suppliers and customers?
Economic and corporate sustainability
How can we enact corporations and organization to develop new models, strategies, policies, and tools to balance profit and sustainable changes?
Structural problems have all one thing in common. They are easy to identify, but difficult to solve. The cause of structural problems is complex, being both behavioral, systemic, and societal, and it goes back a long time in history. That’s obviously why we have such a hard time solving structural problems like creating diverse organizations and corporate sustainability, even though there ́s a mutual understanding of the importance to do so.
To solve these problems a new approach is needed that is deeply rooted in the understanding of agency, lived experience, communities, and social dynamics. An approach that is open-ended and exploratory in nature and have a strong bottom-up element incorporated. Because changes never happen, unless we can translate it into meaningful actions for people.
In Enact:Lab we work with companies, foundations, institutions all over the world. Get in touch if you want to hear more about how we can help you creating change.
