Become an Exchange Leader: Applications Due One Month from Today!
February 27, 2023
When I dare to be powerful—to use my strength in the service of my vision—then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
-Audrey Lorde, 1934-1992, Writer and Professor

Do you know someone who has made an impact in the world of early care and education? Maybe that someone is you! The more than 450 members of the Exchange Leadership Initiative are everywhere, doing powerful work. All of them share these traits:

  • Passion and a belief that they must, and can, make a difference on behalf of young children and their families or in the field of ECE.
  • Vision for what needs to happen.
  • Determination, grit, persistence, and a willingness to continue to learn and grow.

Let us empower those whom we see "lead," encouraging them to acknowledge their impact as change makers, mentors, and role models. Let us intentionally consider diversity and equity. Let us invite our colleagues who may have been marginalized due to systemic inequities. Help us to reach leaders who may not yet recognize this call to action is for them.

"I tend to work with the bottom rung of folks that no one wants to work with — motivate them that they can be a force and advocate for themselves. I am like this in every facet of my life from management, church, children's organizations, local, state, and national levels. I am the result of a generation who saw a need and worked to fulfill the need."
—Victoria Long-Coleman, Exchange Leader 2022
