Issues to Watch 2021

No one could have predicted the many challenges that came with 2020. With the year officially behind us, ACS is highlighting three issues for 2021:

  1. K-12 Education
    With a change in administration at the federal level, national K-12 public education policy will see significant changes in 2021 and beyond.
  2. Infant Vitality
    When California noticed their state’s pregnancy-related mortality rate reaching peaks in 2006 (from 7.7 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1999 to 16.9 per 100,000 in 2006) they started by looking at the causes of death and finding solutions to the most preventable causes. From this initiative, evidence-based research and best practices helped to standardize healthcare providers’ response to prevent common and preventable complications in pregnancies.
  3. Women in the Workforce
    The global pandemic has impacted women in the workforce in unique and alarming ways, and a full recovery to pre-pandemic employment is likely to take years.

Jargon Bingo

Today we live in a world immersed in jargon: From industry words such as “synergy” and “scalable” to pandemic-related words like, SARS-CoV-2 and RT-PCR Test… the list goes on! Just because others use of jargon lingo, doesn’t mean you should clutter your communication.

Jargon can often stand in the way of your message getting to your audience. Learn more about how to avoid this.

The National Smart Start Conference

Last year, ACS was honored to participate virtually in the National Smart Start Conference, where national experts in early education meet annually. Watch Scarlett Bouder facilitate a panel of expert leaders on how to support early childhood education during the pandemic crisis.
