Event Description

Gesell Institute of Human Development, a New Haven based non-profit on the Yale campus, is planning a very important event---a leadership in early childhood education conference.
http://www.gesellinstitute.org/pdf/LEADConferenceBrochure.pdf

This is a conference you will not want to miss! Register today to hear from world renowned pediatricians T. Berry Brazelton, MD and Joshua D. Sparrow, MD, and Head Start founder Ed Zigler, PhD. We are also honored to feature Jacqueline Jones, Sr. Advisor to the Secretary of Education for Early Learning from DC; Alliance for Childhood’s Executive Director, Joan Almon; Columbia University’s Dr. Sharon Lynn Kagan; and United States Representative, the Honorable Rosa DeLauro.

Our pre-conference banquet on October 14th will feature award-winning journalist and engaging speaker Ashley Merryman, also the co-author of the New York Times bestseller NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children. In addition, Ed Zigler, the founder of Head Start, will be receiving an honoray award for his achievements in early childhood education.

Our national conference on October 15th, 2010 has been designed to address the important issues of early childhood education leadership, in a way that no other leadership conference has. Speakers include both world-renowned experts in child development and practitioners, including Sally Millaway, Principal and David Mooij, Superintendent, of Neptune Township School District in New Jersey, where they have experienced first-hand the power of utilizing a research-based early childhood program for preschool and Kindergarten children.

As outlined in our conference materials at www.gesellinstitute.org/events, the conference will be structured to include three keynote presentations and four panels, lead by experts and practitioners in the field. Some of the key questions we will address are as follows.

What curricular models are leading to higher test scores?
What does research tell us about how children learn?
What policies are making a positive difference in terms of learning outcomes?
What role does hands-on, developmentally appropriate practice play?

Hope you can attend. Limited space so register early!

CNN Spotlights LISC's Record Efforts to Close Racial Wealth & Opportunity Gaps

Since the outbreak of the pandemic and this year's anti-racist protests, LISC has raised some $2 billion in grants, loans and equity to fund programs that aim to upend structural racism and close yawning health, wealth and opportunity gaps. An article in CNN looks at how corporate donors have stepped up to support LISC in this work and points to what will be an ongoing need. As LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones says in the piece, “This requires faithfulness over a long time to have real transformative impact. It can't just be 2020. This has to be a new chapter.”

LISC CEO on His Journey to LISC, and What's Happened Since

As a recent guest on In Black America, a long-running podcast that plumbs many facets of African American life, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones described the trajectory that brought him to LISC and how the organization is currently working. LISC's newest initiative, Project 10X, he explains, is a culmination and intensification of our efforts to promote racial equity and close the discriminatory health, wealth and opportunity gaps that have plagued Americans since the country's inception.

Jones said these efforts are particularly vital given the impact of COVID-19, as well as the racial reckoning facing the entire country and the ongoing impact of climate change, especially in coastal areas like Jacksonville.
