Show + Tell: Equity and Justice in Early Care and Education
This event was held on July 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Hosted by Promise Venture Studios, in partnership with ECFC
Show+Tell is an online interactive event series showcasing the most promising innovations in early childhood development with the potential for scaled impact for children facing the greatest adversities. We know that in order to achieve equitable outcomes for all children and families we have to invest as early as possible to address barriers children and families face that create race and other-identity-based disparities.
So what are leaders doing to advance equity and justice?
Within early care & education, this Show+Tell event elevated voices of innovators who are honoring the inherent strengths of communities that have been underserved by our ECE systems and institutions. These innovators are reimagining systems of early care and education. Featured presenters covered topics such as centering cultural traditions, honoring linguistic diversity, reframing quality assessments in early learning, ending unjust disciplinary practices, 2-gen family support, equitable career pathways in ECE, and more. It’s not too late to make connections and offer support to these leaders in the birth equity and justice movement. Click here to listen to each presentation.
