Community of Practice: Capacity Building Through a Lens of Racial Equity and Healing in Infant and Early Childhood Systems of Care
3-4:30 p.m. ET / 2-3:30 p.m. CT / 1-2:30 p.m. MT / 12-1:30 p.m. PT / 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. AKT / 9-10:30 a.m. HT
We are pleased to offer this four-part learning series for Infant and Early Childhood practitioners, leaders, family members, and professionals from related sectors. The series will help participants understand how to begin building supportive racial healing spaces, reflect on ways to be more culturally humble, work on issues of equity, address power imbalances, and engage in critical self-reflection required to deeply collaborate on this work. We will engage with this content both in large-group learning and breakout room activities to explore and share our racial and cultural values. We hope that this opportunity to reflect with colleagues offers a first step in exploring how personal experiences shape the way we process information, as well as our abilities to respond with compassion and empathy in cross-racial settings. We will provide you with peer support as you are challenged to think through ways you have done harm, as well as ways you can transform your practice with children and families from historically oppressed and marginalized communities. By the end of this series, learners will be able to differentiate between organizational approaches and the personal, ongoing work needed to make change.
