Early Childhood Policy Matters


Building Equity into an Early Childhood System

Ep. 22

In this episode we discuss equity, and the work being done in one state to embed equity in all aspects of its early learning system. Host Nancy vonBargen (ICF) sits down with three state leaders from Oregon to discuss their work, their successes, and what a commitment to equity really looks like in early childhood care and education. 

Guests from the Early Learning Division of the Oregon Department of Education - soon to be the Department of Early Learning and Care – include Karina Guzmàn Ortiz, Partner Engagement Specialist; Jenny Mendoza, Research and Evaluation Manager; and Kimberly Moua, Early Childhood Equity Fund Manager.

Early Childhood Policy Matters is supported by the National Technical Assistance Center for Preschool Development Grants Birth through Five, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Office of Child Care.
