Deputy Executive Director
National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)
This session is sponsored by HiMama.
This session will illustrate how the national movement called “Power to the Profession” provides the unique opportunity to transform the loosely organized early childhood education occupation into a more united, compensated, diverse and effective profession. It will highlight the critical questions that the field must coherently address in order to make a strong case for compensation and other publicly funded supports.
Power to the Profession is a national collaboration to define the early childhood profession by establishing a unifying framework for career pathways, knowledge and competencies, qualifications, standards and compensation.
This collective initiative is influenced by the early childhood education field and led by a National Task Force of 15 national organizations who represent and engage with large groups of early childhood professionals. In addition, over 30 national organizations with systems-level influence on the early childhood profession make up the stakeholder group.
1. Understand basic information abut Power to the Profession.
2. Understand the complexities and importance of the questions that must be addressed as a collective.
3. Be prepared to join this field-led effort to advance the ECE profession.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
