Why should the business sector care about the wellbeing of children?
The business sector comprises many different industries from banking to manufacturing and primary production. If you are not involved in running an early childhood service you might be surprised to learn that early childhood education services are also part of the business sector.
Below is discussion and comments about whether and how the business sector might go about caring for the wellbeing of children. While having a role in caring about children may be new to many businesses, it is not to early childhood education businesses.
Reported below also are the main ideas and views given by speakers at the Every Child Counts 2012 Forum on this topic. The Speakers were: Dr Allan Freeth (CE Of Telstra Clear), Dr Jo Cribb (Deputy Children's Commissioner), Lisa Tumahai (Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu), and Dr Arini (University of Auckland, who provided a thought-provoking personal and Pasifika perspective).
