Nyangala is a Policy Learning Designer for the Innovation Growth Lab’s (IGL) Policy team. She helps IGL partners and the wider policy community to share and learn from policy ideas.

Since joining Nesta in 2018, Nyangala has worked to deliver impact through strategic communications and programme design, having supported the delivery of Nesta’s 2030 strategy. Prior to Nesta, Nyangala worked for a human rights and tech startup, which aimed to facilitate justice for international war crimes. She has worked for both profit and non-profit organisations, and is an avid advocate of interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral work that is mission-driven.

Nyangala has a degree in International Relations and holds a MA in Global Media and Transnational Communications from Goldsmith’s, University of London. Her personal interests tend to fall into three main categories: social justice, design and technology. So if she's not in the office, you'll likely find her somewhere historically significant – and always engaged in meaningful debate.
