Listening for Data: Black@Schools Instagram Text Mining and Evidence-Informed DEI Work in Independent Schools
In the summer of 2020, the Klingenstein Center launched a research initiative focused on text-mining public Black@IndependentSchools Instagram accounts. We wondered: How might these stories – across schools, within and across regions – allow us to make more informed decisions about how we approach diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging work in schools? How can we know that what we do in our schools works – and for whom?
In this Klingenstein Center Seminar, we will share how we designed and approached this original research initiative, our findings from analyzing over 250 Instagram accounts, and resources to help expand your capacity for evidence-informed leadership.
