Leadership and Growing Anti-Bias Early Childhood Programs

Friday | 2-4 p.m.

An anti-bias perspective requires thoughtful, strategic, and long-term leadership, which addresses all components of an early childhood program. Presenters will share a conceptual framework and strategies for establishing a shared vision and mission, reading the context of your program, supporting staff and families, and creating a “third space” where conflict situations transform into new learning.

Presented with Debbie Leekeenan (Lesley University) and John Nimmo (Wheelock College)
