Racial, economic, and social justice for the early care and education workforce: Pre–, during, and post–COVID-19: January 2021 convening summary


With support from the Foundation for Child Development, the Urban Institute in partnership with Child Trends organized and facilitated a two-day convening in January 2021 titled Racial, Economic, and Social Justice for the Early Care and Education Workforce: Pre–, During, and Post–COVID-19. The convening highlighted what was known and the gaps and tensions regarding the following related questions: What do we know about advancing financial equity for the ECE workforce and routes forward to better compensation? What do we know about ECE workforce well-being and promising approaches to supporting the well-being of the ECE workforce? What needs to be considered to best support the implementation of policies to address structural inequities? This report summarizes key themes discussed during the convening. It draws on background material shared, presentations from invited speakers, and rich group discussions. However, the report does not provide a full running record or represent a consensus on the topic. (author abstract)
