This webinar was presented during the BUILD 2021 National Conference.

As the expectations for degreed early childhood educators increase, effective strategies and supports are needed to ensure that the field does not lose its rich diversity. This session will include a presentation on what the T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Initiative is doing to assure equity of access to both scholarships and debt-free degree completion. Participants will hear from T.E.A.C.H. program representatives from NC, WI, and the District of Columbia about how they are making this happen on the ground and the results they are seeing.

Presenters: Marsha Basloe and Edith Locke, Child Care Services Association; Nar Doumbya, Wisconsin Early Childhood Association; Cemeré James, National Black Child Development Institute
