Exchange continues to spotlight leadership in the field of Early Care and Education as the Exchange Leadership Initiative announces the results of our search for Master Leaders.
The Exchange Leadership Initiative began last November with the search for Emerging Leaders and published the results in the May/June 2015 issue of Exchange (www.ChildCareExchange.com/leadership). Emerging Leaders are currently engaged in writing articles for Exchange magazine, participating in surveys about the field, connecting in-person at conferences and gatherings, and advising and creating a presence through social media. Many Emerging Leaders will be attending the “Action Forum on Early Childhood Leadership” (an experience designed specifically for them) before the NAEYC conference in November.
Next steps include a meeting at the Action Forum with the collaborating partners of ELI, follow-up on ideas for the support and development of leadership generated at the Action Forum, and community building and idea generating with the new cohort of Master Leaders. In 2016, the next search for leaders who work directly with young children will be announced.
In the following directory you will meet the applicants who have been vetted by the esteemed members of the Master Leaders Review Team as meeting the criteria for Master Leader. More information on each of these Master Leaders and the members of the Review Team can be found online at www.ChildCareExchange.com/leadership.
