About

Virago Futures is a heart-centered innovation studio founded by Jeanne Brooks, an ecosystem architect, healer and leader.

Our vision is to build a world where all can thrive.  

We are pioneers of design thinking

and have had great success utilizing and teaching human-centered design to power successful businesses and organizations, local-to-global decentralized networks, movements and game-changing technology. By supporting  community participation through storytelling, art, and play, we’ve fostered enormous growth and realized industry-level transformation.

Cultivating world-changing ideas starts within.  Our process with clients mirrors our own journey to authentic leadership; bravely traversing the difficult terrain of disconnecting from old systems and paradigms, and releasing fear of change. We continue to blossom into the ever-evolving Virago Futures, where we build with compassion, integrity, and love.

We offer one-on-one and organizational services

Virago Futures offers services that range from individual leadership guidance to full scale creative design and ecosystem architecture for small to enterprise level organizations.
