Child Care Leaders: Stepping Up in Challenging Times

The child care community has faced incredible challenges in navigating the impact of the pandemic and beyond as child care continues to be in crisis. Child care leaders have been instrumental not only in ensuring that child care survives but can thrive to become a system that truly meets the needs of families, the workforce and the economy. We will explore the leadership skills that the child care community brought to address these challenges and what leadership is needed now to build a stronger child care system, including the critical role of advocacy.
