FRESH Labs provides a radical re-imagining of the cultural and structural practices of thought leadership through research, collaboration, and content creation. Our goal? Create a world where leaders can show up as their whole selves in the public square. A logo that reads "FRESH Labs" with colorful shapes lining each letter and a gray dotted grid in the background.

For the first time, FRESH is taking the most cutting edge thinking that circulates through the FRESH community and framing it up
for everyone
We imagine a future where ideas are born from the most diverse of thinkers and joyful of noble friendships, amplified in a wide variety of ways on a wide variety of people-powered platforms, and refined and evolved over generational time. We want a world where people with worthwhile ideas can show up as their whole selves wherever they go–multi-faceted, creative, caretaking, quiet and loud, healing and healed, followers and leaders.   
That means podcasts and TikTok videos for aspiring thought leaders on how to have impact without restoring to poverty porn, toolkits for philanthropists to avoid tokenization and increase genuine belonging at their gatherings, and original research on the most powerful conferences in America and who is on the stage and in the audience.    
We want to play our part in transforming the public square. Less sage on the stage and more collective thought leadership. Less training BIPOC+ speakers how to perform for elite, White-majority audiences and more diversifying audiences in rooms where it happens. Less hero-worship and more collective future-building. 
Want to collaborate? Reach out.
