Join BUILD leaders Susan Hibbard and Sherri Killins Stewart and national early childhood leader/mentor/inspiration Joan Lombardi to reflect on the progress in early childhood systems development over the last 20 years and the challenges that remain.
We’ll talk about how intentionally seeking to benefit children and families who have been marginalized by our institutions and structures is essential, advancing racial equity and systems building are intertwined, and how thinking and work on state and community connections has evolved. We’ll also talk about how our views have changed over time about leaders and leadership, leading from anywhere/everywhere, acting within one’s role and responsibility, and using one’s role and influence to shift policy and practice, and working together across sectors. The webinar will include short video appearances of some of BUILD’s earliest partnerships with state leaders and funders.
This is the last webinar in our pre-conference series leading up to BUILD 2022, where all aspects of early childhood systems will be explored in live, simulive, and on-demand sessions and plenaries. The plenaries will include a conversation between Heather McGhee and BUILD’s Sherri Killins Stewart and another between Sesame Street’s Sonia Manzano and ZERO TO THREE’s Miriam Calderon.
