Grants to this Grantee
for The People Lab
The People Lab aims to transform the public sector by producing cutting-edge research with the people in government and the communities they serve. Working with government collaborators and other stakeholders, The People Lab will expand its research on how to strengthen the public-sector workforce and improve public service delivery, with a particular focus on how to increase the talent pipeline into government, how to support public servants to be engaged and successful at work, and how to build researcher-practitioner collaborations on workforce issues. Building on the first phase of its work conducting workforce roundtables and pulse surveys of federal government employees, The People Lab plans to facilitate a set of field experiments with the federal government to pilot and test new strategies designed to improve outcomes for public-sector workers and the communities they serve.
for support of and learning from a community of practice focused on system transformation
The Deeper Learning Dozen project is housed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The project supports a community of practice with 12 superintendents and their team members, all of whom are committed to making the changes necessary so that all young people and adults equitably experience deeper learning. The work will result in an understanding of how to create the changes in systems, policies, practices, roles, beliefs, and assumptions. The project will share its learnings widely through a variety of channels. (Substrategy: District Deep Dives and Networks)
for support of the Shorenstein Center’s Technology and Social Change research
The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School is dedicated to exploring the intersection of press, politics, and public policy. Given the rise of misinformation, the center has created the Technology and Social Change research project to rapidly build the field of critical internet studies across academia, working with policymakers, industry, and newsrooms. This grant will in part support the expansion of a shared digital research infrastructure.
