Systems Change in Early Childhood Using the Water of Systems Change Framework

  • Registration Closed

Join the Early Childhood Developmental Health Systems (ECDHS): Evidence to Impact Center on Thursday, May 16, 2024, from 4-5:30 PM EDT for the webinar “Systems Change in Early Childhood Using the Water of Systems Change Framework.”

Melissa Passarelli, associate director of implementation and system-building at Help Me Grow National Center, and Jennifer Splansky Juster, executive director at Collective Impact Forum, will introduce The Water of Systems Change and how it can be applied to early childhood systems-building work. They will explore six interdependent conditions that vary from “explicit” to “implicit”: 

  • Structural Change (explicit): policies, practices, resource flow 
  • Relational Change (semi-explicit): relationship & connections, power dynamics
  • Transformative Change (implicit): mental models   

This webinar will help early childhood and health systems leaders - including Title V; Association of Maternal and Childhood Health Programs; Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems; Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting; Preschool Development Grant Birth Through Five; and similar program leaders - identify potential strategies for their work.  After participating in the webinar, attendees will be able to: 

  • List the six conditions of change.
  • Identify ways to apply a shift of conditions to their early childhood work. 
  • Further their conceptual knowledge of systems and systems change. 

CEU credits will be available to those who attend the live webinar.
