Funder Reflection on Show+Tell: Equity & Justice in ECD
This event was held on August 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
In this funder-only session, Promise Venture Studio invites funders interested in the recent equity and justice Show+Tell series to join them for an interactive conversation with your peers on the issues and the presentations you saw at Show+Tell: Birth Equity & Justice and at Show+Tell: Equity & Justice in ECE. (If you weren’t able to attend the Show+Tell events, you can visit the preceding links to watch individual pitches or full re-plays of both events.) The session begins with a brief review of the key themes covered in the two Show+Tell programs and in a prior funder event focused on the experiences of Black leaders with philanthropy in early childhood, based on a study commissioned by ECFC. Attendees will also break into smaller groups for extended discussion (40-60 minutes) on the themes that most interest to them. This session offers an opportunity to:
- Learn from other funders about their theses for investing in birth equity and ECE equity.
- Discuss specific issues or specific solutions/organizations with funders who share your interest in this space.
- Collectively reflect on the opportunities and barriers to achieving true equity in the funding of early childhood programs.
- Collaborate on investments.
