Men in Early Childhood Education: The Compelling Need Before Us
Join us as the Council’s CEO, Dr. Calvin E. Moore, Jr., leads a panel of men who will discuss their fight against gender bias and explain what keeps them in the early learning profession. Look forward to hearing uplifting stories. Learn promising ways to engage more men in our field and see why that benefits young children. Having a nurturing male presence in the classroom, as our panel will show, can provide positive role models for young learners by redefining what it means to be a man.
