The moment is now
At Matterlab, changing the world is more than a mantra. We help you measure what matters so you can transform the future.
Become an undeniable force for change
For nonprofits, schools, and education leaders doing something big, something different, something that matters, we can help. Matterlab exists to reimagine entire systems around equity in education, because incremental progress isn’t enough when the mission is creating better outcomes for all.
Leading with Equity Impact
Equity Impact is a new approach to codifying, measuring, and scaling your most important work. Matterlab provides the tools to catalyze impact, the content to amplify voices, the partnership to advance your programs, the community to push you further, and the framework to reimagine entire systems for greater equity.

“Sounds like a great place to work! I wonder why the agency is named Matterlab?” That was my initial thought after my first conversation about the possibility of joining Matterlab. Let’s take it back a little further.
Today is MLK Day, but Friday was his actual birthday — and he would have been 92 years old. Instead, he was assassinated 52 years ago at only 39 years young. It took almost 20 years and countless failed bills to actually pass legislation to make today a federal holiday — the first in recognition of a private citizen, a non-President, a Black person.
You have what it takes
We understand that mission statements sometimes sit on the backburner while day-to-day tasks take up your time and energy. Let us help you break the cycle and ignite your opportunities to change the world.
Igniting real impact across America
Matterlab has helped over 50 education nonprofits meet the urgent need to create more equitable pathways to economic empowerment for all Americans. We’ve worked with each of these organizations to deliver the tools, resources, and support needed to create lasting change.
CEO + Founder
“This is my life’s work – building tools and community around greater equity impact for children and families.”
“I’m a Consultant at Matterlab, working directly with partners on a daily basis to increase their equity impact. Matterlab’s mission and values speak to who I am at my core, and when I was hired, I could tell the team was as excited about me as I am about them. We’ve got a lot of work to do – together.”
“When I design graphics for our partners, I feel like I’m designing for my own community, because I see myself in these kids’ shoes. They deserve the best from their schools – from all of us.”
