Drawing on the variety of approaches that exist in leadership development initiatives and activities in the early childhood education field, these two lists provide brief profiles of such initiatives in an effort to recognize current efforts and assist in the development of new ones. Each program profiled was selected either because it demonstrated leadership development with individuals in different roles within the field or because they target underrepresented groups such as people of color, language minorities, and low income people. The first list provides profiles of 12 program samples of leadership development approaches within early childhood education. The list includes the following information: (1) name of program; (2) start date; (3) sponsors; (4) population served; (5) content of training; (6) length and format of training; and (7) contact person. The second list provides profiles of 13 programs where leadership development is occurring outside the early childhood field. The list includes the following information: (1) generators of leadership development; (2) characteristics; and (3) selected examples/populations affected. (SD)
