Integration & Alignment Committee

​​​The Integration & Alignment Committee (IAC) works to recommend appropriate changes to early childhood systems and improve coordination integration, and advance racial equity across early childhood programs and funding streams in order to address the comprehensive nature of children’s healthy development and readiness for school. The Committee will use a racial equity lens to provide input and feedback on key federal and state early childhood initiatives that impact cross sector early childhood systems. It will provide leadership on systems building efforts and will intentionally seek to include diverse stakeholder voice and representation. In moving this work forward, IAC will continue to identify external tables and other ELC Committees and Workgroups to ensure work of the Committee is informed and coordinated, striving to be racially equitable. The IAC will explicitly focus on two main strategies identified by the BUILD Team to advance racial equity: (1) determine metrics and identify processes to measure and monitor progress; and (2) be proactive about inclusion of a broad representation with a racial equity lens.
