Breakout Session: Futures Thinking for More Equitable Early Childhood Systems

Systems thinking and futures thinking are a powerful combination in our efforts to create more just and equitable futures for young children and families. Katie King and Maria Romero of KnowledgeWorks will introduce key concepts of futures thinking and facilitate a dialogue about how participants can incorporate it into systems thinking habits and practices. Participants will leave the session with new tools and discussion prompts that will enable collaborative conversations with their system stakeholders about creating more equitable futures.
