Is your QRIS doing what it was designed to do? Is your system addressing or perpetuating structural inequities? Has your system created barriers for programs using culturally and developmentally appropriate practices? Are we measuring what we treasure, or measuring what is quantifiable? Have political limitations impacted your ability to serve diverse populations? We invite QRIS systems leaders to join us for an introspective conversation and tackle difficult questions together.
