Nexus Labs are a platform for Nexus projects in development. They range in size and scope from small and temporary ideas to large and global visions. All projects advance the mission of the organization, draw from the membership of the network, and seek to incorporate or promote the celebration of diversity. As processes they may convene stakeholders, help to develop content for Nexus Summits, produce thought leadership, or facilitate action.
As “works in progress” the projects of Labs do not necessarily represent the views of the organization or its membership. They are “experimental” ventures.
By design, Labs fall into one of three categories:
We have several Labs currently led by teams of Nexus members. They include:
