Stories from a Historic Event: 2008 Working Forum on Men in Early Care and Education

Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n184 p26-27 Nov-Dec 2008
The 2008 Working Forum on Men in Early Care in Education (WFMECE) was a first-of-its-kind event and is now part of the collective history. Sponsored by the World Forum Foundation in collaboration with the Hawai'i Association for the Education of Young Children and, the event extended the international dialog on changing roles for men and women. As a result, this event was unique, progressive, and historical in its implications. This article presents stories about the many roles of men in early childhood care and education--stories about what it means to be a man working in ECE, and to be a woman or a child in a world with few male teachers. Stories, reports, and presentation summaries are posted on the World Forum web site as an e-version of conference proceedings, and serve as a permanent record and report for extending the impact of this event. These shared outcomes also are used for informing the next steps in the WFMECE program development.
