PDIA in Action: Access to Childcare in Burien, WA


Tuesday, May 4, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm


Zoom registration information below.


In Burien, current child-care benefits are limited and restrictive. The people who most need the benefit are not able to afford or access quality childcare leading to broader social and economic impacts on the community.

As part of MLD103M, students at HKS and HGSE spent 7 weeks working with a City Council member to better understand this problem and to help identify ideas and entry points. In this presentation the student team and their authorizer will share some of their key takeaways and recommendations from this experience.


Presenters: Crystal Collier, Doreen King, and Sasinat Chindapol, students at the Harvard Kennedy School; Kevin Schilling, Burien City Council member and Implemeting Public Policy executive program alumni. Moderator: Salimah Samji, Director of Building State Capability (BSC).
