I worked with Margaret Ogden and the Pennsylvania Interbranch Commission for Gender, Racial and Ethnic Fairness to create a brochure that court officials and staff will receive to help them understand and combat issues of bias and implicit bias in the PA Courts. Designed by Andrea Pekelnicky. Read the whole thing.
In addition, we created a print piece for an implicit bias/Commission event hosted in Philadelphia in March 2019. The piece highlights the commission’s work over the last 15 years. Read that here.
JURIST is a web-based legal news and real-time legal research service powered by students and staff at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. It aims to provide primary sources as the world’s only law school-based comprehensive legal news and research service, providing the latest legal developments in real time for members of the legal community and the public at large.
One project in particular for the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation that I worked on in partnership with our lead strategist led me to research the gap that exists in opportunity for low-income, high achieving learners.

The site contains an “ages and stages” portal that describes why this gap is so important, why it happens, and what can be done about it. My role was to aid in this research and content development, as well as provide final copy and grammar edits.
Here are a few screengrabs from the Early Grades segment:
