Sarah leads the Design part of YLab, FYA's social enterprise focused on enabling young people and those working alongside them to address emerging policy, business, and social sector challenges. YLab Design does this in a couple of ways. Firstly, we equip young people to work with organisations by training and certifying them as YLab Associates. And secondly, we connect them with other YLab Associates to work in multidisciplinary teams to collaboratively design solutions ('multicollabdesign'!) to challenges facing a range of government, corporate, and not-for-profit clients.
Before YLab, Sarah led strategic and economic advisory projects for a global engineering professional services firm (SKM, and then Jacobs). She has also worked on economic development policy and programs with the Asia Foundation in Bangkok and UdayanCare in Delhi.
