Claire "Daanee" Touchstone, Cohort 5, presented at the 14th Annual White Privilege Conference in Seattle, Washington, April 10-14, 2013. Her presentation, "Money, Class, and Multiracialism: The Intersectionality of White Privilege and Racial Microaggressions In the Black-White Mixed-Race Experience," examined the relationship between money and social class (as racialized components) and White privilege in the experiences of multiracial people. Looking at interracial marriage combinations and implicit racial hierarchy in the United States, this workshop specifically reflected on how Black-White multiracial people receive racial microaggressions based on the perceived wealth (or lack thereof) and social class standing due to their parents' racial combinations.

Clark National Graduate Student Research Seminar in Educational Administration & Policy, sponsored by the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), Divisions A and L of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), Corwin Press and Sage Publications.

Dana's presentation, "Women Principals of Jewish Secular High Schools in Israel: Access and Progress," is a quantitative investigation focused on women high school principals at Jewish secular schools throughout Israel. Despite challenges, Israeli women have succeeded in obtaining over half of the principal positions at Jewish secular high schools, but the degree to which there is equal gender access to leadership roles in the school system remains unclear. Her study examined whether there is clustering of women in high school principal positions in certain geographical areas and the process by which these women obtained principal positions. The data include an examination of the distribution of women principals based on available national data, a geographical comparison among the six districts in Israel, and a questionnaire that determined more detailed demographics. This study will contribute to the growing body of international research on women in educational leadership.
