Leah Glass is a current doctoral student in sociology at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her research examines how racism is manifested in various institutions and platforms: non-profits, the education system, YouTube, and even in soccer. Her current work explores how "diversity" discourse and initiatives are experienced by staff at non-profits. Leah is a mixed methods researcher—she has experience quantitatively studying post-secondary outcomes for first generation college students, as well as conducting in-depth interviews and ethnographies in organizations. In addition to her doctoral studies, Leah also works full-time as a non-profit data analyst. When not working or studying, you can find her cuddling with her cat Benny or on a pitch playing soccer.
