A Letter to the Community
There is one word that comes to mind as we think about this past year: courage. It takes courage to take on big ideas, stand up in the face of inequity, and implement new and daunting intiatives. We know that courageous acts suh as these can dramatically transform outcomes for children in our community.
Over this past year the partnership has doubled down on our efforts to use data, gotten serious about embedding equity into everything we do, and launched our Continuous Improvement training program, ImpactU. This work, and the other work you will read about continues to happen beacause of you - our courageous and dedicated partners.
And while we're continually hopeful and constantly energized by the wonderful work in our community, the data tells us tht there's much more work to be done. We hope that this year's Annual Report will encourage you to continue to engage in this collective work or, if you are hearing about the partnership for the first time, provoke you to join us in our continued efforts.
We are thankful for your courage and are inspired by your commitment to improving outcomes for every child, every step of the way, cradle to career.
