Making the Hidden Visible

The Lived Experience of the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) Practitioner at Independent Schools

From the researcher:

EXPLO Elevate set out to better understand the work of DEIJ practitioners at independent schools. To put it simply, the goal was to hear individual experiences and uncover themes that can support individual DEIJ practitioners and the overall work. Ta-Nehisi Coates, in his book Between the World and Me, writes, “You are growing into consciousness, and my wish for you is that you feel no need to constrict yourself to make other people comfortable.” Moving into the first person (for a moment), as I interviewed practitioners and sat down to write this piece, I grew into consciousness myself on my own personal and ongoing journey in DEIJ work. I hope this research and the perspectives shared by the practitioners shed light on their experiences, benefiting them and all of us. We can be uncomfortable and live in that space together as we become more aware. - Sudipti Kumar
