Leading for Early Childhood Workforce Equity: A Legislative Panel

Archived Meeting Resources
August 24, 2022

This session was presented during the BUILD 2021 National Conference.

Our early childhood workforce (including early childhood educators working in public and private preschools; home- and center-based childcare providers; home visitors; early interventionists; doulas, etc.) does the essential work of caring for and educating our youngest citizens and providing critical services for families. Yet, far too often they live near or below the poverty line. In this plenary session, hear from elected officials from several states that understand the issues related to the devastatingly low wages of this workforce and are working to change these education and health systems that have perpetuated economic oppression.
