Networks increasingly drive social change efforts, and developing network effectiveness requires a range of activities and specialized supports. GPG believes that the Early Care and Education (ECE) field, and by association, California’s youngest learners, would benefit from strengthening and formalizing the network of organizations and collaboratives working to influence and/or inform ECE policy in California. GPG created two network maps to identify (1) organizations, and (2) collaboratives working in the state ECE policy landscape. The purpose of these maps is to:
This website contains information, maps, and other tools related to the California CA ECE Network Mapping work undertaken by the Glen Price Group (GPG) with financial support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
GPG created these maps to add value to the ECE policy field in California. GPG envisions a range of audiences for these maps. Specifically, these tools could be useful for members and staff in the California Assembly, Senate, and Administration; state agency staff; and other policy makers seeking a better understanding of ECE policy actors/influencers in California. More broadly, these maps can serve any stakeholder that wishes to identify ECE policy organizations, collaboratives, and/or potential partners. The maps may be particularly useful for those new to the ECE landscape in California and those seeking to identify partners with Specific Focus areas (ex: child health or ECE workforce) and/or Natures of Work (ex: media/communications or research).
