social change dialoguesIn a series of virtual Social Change Dialogues held this past spring, experts from WCW, Wellesley College, and beyond discussed ways that the U.S. can work to advance gender equality, social justice, and human wellbeing.

In Letting All Voices Be Heard: New Directions for K-12 Education, panelists talked about the daunting challenges facing educators and students, and what must be done to support them. “There needs to be a way to ask every single teacher in every single classroom what they need both materially and spiritually—humanely—in order to come back and be their whole selves,” said Emmy Howe, M.Ed., co-director of the National SEED Project.

In Crisis and Opportunity: Building a Better Child Care System, panelists spoke about what the Biden-Harris administration has done so far to support the U.S. child care industry, and what still needs to be done. “We need to not just listen to families and educators, but to put what they say into actual policy,” said Senior Research Scientist Wendy Wagner Robeson, Ed.D.

In Overcoming the She-cession: Supporting Women in the Workforce, panelists discussed how government policies can help women overcome the challenges of the pandemic and move the needle forward on gender equity. “This is an opportunity for us to drive policy solutions not only to go back to what we had, but also to ask for an equitable recovery such that everybody can fulfill their potential,” said Research Scientist Deniz Çivril, Ph.D.
