Promoting Equity in Early Childhood: A Storytelling Series to Build Atlantic Connections
This storytelling series is part of a project funded by SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council) led by Dr. Jessie- Lee McIsaac (Tier II Canada Research Chair in Early Childhood: Diversity and Transition) at the Early Childhood Collaborative Research Centre located at Mount Saint Vincent University.
This project is also supported by the Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation in partnership with universities, government departments, and early childhood associations across Atlantic Canada.
The purpose of this project is to build connections and showcase research and practice focused on equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility (or EDIA) in early learning and child care.
The storytelling sessions will take the form of a three-part series and will mobilize Atlantic-wide research and practice. Each seminar will highlight speakers from across Atlantic Canada on key topics critical to EDIA. See below for the list of dates and a link to the Eventbrite page for registration.
