Edging Forward:
Overview of States’ Progress Addressing Workforce Data Gaps and Actions Steps for Policymakers
Tuesday, October 11, 2016, 2 – 3 p.m. ET
We want to invite you to join a webinar, hosted by the Early Childhood Data Collaborative, on Tuesday, October 11 from 2 to 3 p.m. ET for an overview of how the Early Childhood Workforce Index can be used to guide policy development in states and discuss findings specific to workforce data.

A recent report by the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment at UC Berkeley completed a national assessment of early childhood workforce policies needed to recruit, maintain, and support a stable well-compensated high-quality workforce. The study found the lack of comprehensive workforce data continues to be an issue for many states. Only 18 states were rated as “making headway” on four workforce data indicators. Representatives from Oregon will share their progress.
