Brigid Canny (she/her)
executive director, ylab – on parental leave
Brigid is the Executive Director of YLab, FYA’s social enterprise. YLab exists to put young people with a range of different technical and lived experiences at the centre of co-designing systems for the future. We do this by training young people up as YLab Associates and connecting them with our clients, organisations across systems and sectors who are trying to solve tough problems.
Brigid has worked as a consultant, filmmaker and creative producer, leading creative and impact projects in the for-purpose sector for over a decade. She loves pottering about, making ceramics, swimming in salt water and snuggling with her weirdo greyhound Dotty.
