Company Profile

Company Overview
Convergence Design Lab is a full service research and design agency, 100% woman-owned. We are on a mission to build resilient learning ecosystems. Convergence was born out of the urgent need of our communities to rethink their own learning ecologies through the lens of equity and engagement.

Today we work at the intersection of research, learning design and strategic thinking helping our partners build sustainable programs and practices that strengthen their immediate and long-term impact.

Testimonial 2
Convergence Design Lab are invaluable partners, collaborators, cheerleaders, advisors, and friends. Their work has pushed Spy Hop and our teaching staff to deeply examine our pedagogy and push us to be better, to do better, to be critical thinkers of our own work. Through our partnership, Convergence Design Lab has given us the insight, guidance, and tools to empower us to better articulate our positive impact on the youth we serve and our place in the world as change-makers. —Matt Mateus, Deputy Director, Spy Hop
Testimonial 3
Convergence Design Lab listened to me think and came back with design ideas that enhanced our strategic thinking. They helped make complex concepts for equity easy to understand using design elements that never would have occurred to us. —Dr. Maurice Swinney, Chief Equity Officer, Chicago Public Schools
