Data shows that families of color are disproportionately represented in the foster care system, as well as, experience poorer outcomes. This presentation will discuss the issues illumined by the data, and provide some historical context associated with child welfare and the formulation of the our child welfare policies and procedures. Additionally, this training will create an opportunity for each participant to become aware of their own philosophical position on child and family wellbeing and will learn strategies for advancing equity by shifting individual and organizational mindset.
