Equity: Early Childhood Systems Building Resource Guide

This resource guide developed by the Child Care State Capacity Building Center is designed to help build capacity to advance equity within state early care and education (ECE) systems. Given long-standing inequities experienced by the ECE workforce—for example, with respect to compensation—and the role the ECE workforce plays in helping to address inequities that children and families may experience, this practical resource provides background information, examples, strategies, and additional resources to help state, Territory, and Tribal leaders identify and address inequities at multiple levels using a systems approach. The companion self-assessment is listed here.
