The 2019 Stronger Together conference brings the early childhood education community together, promoting advocacy, collaboration, and professional development. Our belief is that drawing on the strengths of our organizations, programs, and individual educators is the best path to a brighter future for our children.
October 11 and 12, Oregon AEYC, CCR&R of Multnomah County, and Threads of Justice are combining our resources and communities to host a weekend event designed for attendees to learn, network, and influence! We are offering engaging and interactive workshops to inform and guide us in our work with children and families in our diverse communities. The conference committee invites you to join us in creating new understandings and taking new perspectives on the work you do and the role you play in your early childhood community.
Our Stronger Together conference offers something for everyone. We invite you to:
Hear from State Early Learning Director Miriam Calderon about the direction of early learning in Oregon
Discuss your role as an advocate for children’s rights and quality care
Meet other teachers and take a deep look at your program practices
