As we collectively work to realize The Future We Imagine, we need to actively be thinking about what it will take to get us there. In the coming months, we will be hosting a series of virtual fireside chats to explore different themes to realize brighter, healthier and more equitable futures for learners and their families and communities.
Each fireside chat will bring together a diverse mix of partners for an intimate conversation with insights, learnings and steps to bring to life transformative solutions for learners. Join us as we dive in from both a global and local perspective.
Centering and leading with lived experience has the power to drive authentic and sustainable change for learners. On June 16, tune in for a fireside chat that will focus on how an individual’s background— in their communities, and/or as learners or caregivers themselves — shapes their understanding of their work and how they lead.
Explore the interconnections between one’s life experiences and values and how those values drive the ways that these leaders from the US work in the system today—from the demographics they focus on to providing whole learner supports to engaging with community. The speakers will pull from their personal experiences to have a thought-provoking conversation about the impact that they are creating across early childhood education and supporting student parents.
Use the hashtag #TheFutureWeImagine on social media to invite your colleagues, partners and friends to the fireside chat, and to share your own thoughts and posts on the day of the event. Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for updates from the fireside chat.
