Human-Centered Design as an Equity Strategy in Early Childhood Policy and Development
Human-centered design (HCD), or user-centered design, has its origins in commercial product design, but it is increasingly being applied to policy development and implementation, including in early childhood. The basic rationale is that those most impacted by policies (i.e., the user) are the best informants for what policies should look like and how they should be implemented. For early childhood advocates, policymakers, and agency leaders intent on ensuring equity and lived experience drive their work and the policy solutions they pursue, HCD also offers a clear roadmap for how to meaningfully listen to and learn from the people who are the intended beneficiaries of early childhood policies.

At this webinar, we will learn what HCD is and hear from two recent examples of how it can be applied to early childhood policy: an effort by the New Jersey Department of Labor, in collaboration with New America’s New Practice Lab, to improve its implementation of paid family leave; and an initiative facilitated by Child Care Aware of Washington State to support a team of early childhood educators to design compensation policy proposals.

Join us on Wednesday, September 14, at 3pm ET for this discussion.
