Our country and state are still reeling from the twin pandemics: coronavirus and racial reckoning. The third pandemic is the devastation of early childhood schools and a workforce shortage. We must create a more equitable, fair, and just society, and move beyond gap gazing by addressing root causes.
In Dr. Iheoma Iruka’s session, attendees will:
- Thread the issues of history, equity, and liberation in order to ensure that children, families, and caregivers are fully supported, valued, and rewarded
- Work with tools and resources to incorporate an anti-bias and racial equity lens in their work with children, families, and communities
- Dismantle racism and other systemic barriers
