Luminary Labs welcomes new Design Manager and launches work-based learning program.

We continue to add to our team, and we’re delighted to share the news of our latest hires. ​​If you are also inspired by our people and our work — and enjoy connecting dots between different spaces — please check out several new opportunities to be part of our growing team.

New hires

Winnie Chang recently joined Luminary Labs as Design Manager, overseeing the Design & Insights team and leading design efforts across our full portfolio of client engagements. She specializes in defining and shaping desirable futures, working alongside project teams and organizations to align goals and translate visions into reality. Winnie applies and manages design approaches that better inform systems, processes, and experiences. Prior to joining Luminary Labs, Winnie was the Design Lead at UNICEF’s Office of Innovation. Her work at the intersection of emerging tech and humanitarian challenges supported teams in the development of open-source, scalable solutions that accelerated results for children. Winnie has deep expertise in design research, workshop facilitation, and human-centered design, as well as in startup mentorship across blockchain, data science/AI, drones and unmanned aerial vehicles, and WebXR portfolios.

Luminary Labs has also launched its inaugural work-based learning program, led by Senior Open Innovation Associate Lisa-Marie Pierre. This summer, we are working directly with local high schools to employ two CTE (career and technical education) students to support ED ARPA projects. These part-time Junior Associates are working with and learning from the Luminary Labs team, including senior leadership, at the Luminary Labs office in New York. The work-based learning experience also includes mentorship opportunities and a professional development accelerator.

New opportunities

We’re working on a number of initiatives with world-changing potential — and we’re hiring strategy and innovation consultants who want to be part of our high-performance, high-impact team in New York.

Luminary Labs engagements span a broad cross section of topics across four focus areas: the future of work and education, the future of health, scientific discovery, and infrastructure. Across clients and topics, our day-to-day consulting work includes conducting desk and design research, mapping ecosystems, building scenarios, engaging stakeholders, creating frameworks for thoughtful and considered decision-making, designing strategic programs — and ultimately, operationalizing and launching new initiatives.

Do you (or someone you know) want to have real impact? Do you want to design and stand up groundbreaking programs? Do you want to work with thoughtful humans and love your job — but still have a life outside of work? Learn more about who we are and how we work, and apply for one of these open roles:
