Hello Hub Operational Leadership

Attached and below, please find the flyer and registration information for the E.Q.U.I.T.Y. series with Dr. Rosemarie Allen. As this is a six part series, there is a separate registration for each event. Please note that the registration is in the Work Force Registry and registrants will require a WRF profile to complete their registration. In order to accommodate our non-ECE community partners for whom the WFR is not applicable, we have created an alternate registration through Eventbrite. However, should attendees utilize the Eventbrite registration option, they will NOT be eligible for Professional Development hours. Only those who register through the Work Force Registry will receive PD credit hours. Please forward this information throughout your consortia and to your community partners.

Please note that two (2) of the six (6) events in this series have already occurred. You do not need to have attended the previous sessions to attend any of the remainder in the series.

Family Engagement

Family engagement happens when early childhood professionals and families actively participate in an ongoing process of building and maintaining these meaningful relationships.”
