Member Exclusive: Re-broadcast from ZERO TO THREE’s Scientific Meeting
June 30, 2021, 2PM ET with Walter Gilliam and Brenda Jones-Harden
Our Scientific Meeting this spring had the theme of Race, Equity, Bias, and Early Childhood, continuing and deepening the conversations that have been occurring among Board and staff these months. Appropriately, we involved Board members, staff, and Fellows in the discussion.
During the first part, several Board members who have studied the impact of racial bias and inequity on young children will describe their work. We heard from Andy Meltzoff concerning the ways that young children pick up racial bias from everyday experience; Brenda Jones-Harden on maternal experience of discrimination and its impact on mothers’ functioning and parenting of their young children; and Walter Gilliam on racial bias experienced and exhibited by early childhood educators.

In this talk, the Center’s President & CEO and Vice President of Programs & Impact will share their leadership philosophies and lessons learned in service to their community and staff members during an extraordinary year.
