Learning from Women of Color to Get Childcare Right

Mar 4, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

The childcare system is failing, with vacant spots in home-based providers while working parents struggle to secure necessary care. In Brownsville, Brooklyn, a unique partnership between Wiggle Room, a social impact tech startup, and United for Brownsville, a direct service nonprofit, bridges the gap for parents and providers in our community. Join us to explore the challenges that sparked this initiative, our community's innovative approach, the current impact, and our vision for the future. This session targets policymakers, funders, service providers, and entrepreneurs.
