Coaches faced many challenges this past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial reckoning of the events last summer. This session will address several ways that coaches in Washington state responded including immersing teams in a collaborative training and book study based on the book, Coaching for Equity, by Elana Aguilar. This session will focus on how collaboration on a common approach to coaching helped to prioritize plans for addressing equity in the early learning system. We will also share other instances of virtual support offered to the coach workforce, including a virtual professional development intervention focused on supporting children’s social and emotional development and responsive coach consultation to increase comfort with virtual coaching.
