When:

National Webinar: Wednesday, October 29, 2014, from 3-4:30 pm ET
Learning Exchange: Wednesday, November 5, 2014, from 3-4 pm ET


What:

Join us for the first session in our national webinar series designed to "mind the gap" and address workforce challenges impacting child welfare organizations across the country. The first session will introduce NCWWI's newly developed Workforce Development Framework (WDF), and its practical application for the field, including key steps in the workforce development assessment and planning process, and core components reflecting multiple workforce development strategies. 


Who:

Presenters include Nancy McDaniel, Director of Consultation & Capacity-building, Butler Institute for Families, University of Denver; Cheryl Springer, Associate Professor, Salem State University School of Social Work and Salem State University Project Manager, Massachusetts Child Welfare Institute; and, Stacy White, Child Welfare Chief, Idaho Children and Family Services. For more information, please explore  Presenter Bios.


Why:

We know the critical importance of the child welfare workforce, and we know there are gaps and challenges. So what can be done? How can we more strategically intervene? The WDF has been created to address these questions. Presenters will describe the development of the WDF and discuss its practical application from the perspective of a child welfare consultant, a child welfare agency leader and a social work educator. The session's follow-up Learning Exchange will offer deeper interaction between the presenters and participants through facilitated discussion designed to enhance critical thinking on this topic.


How:

Both the national webinar session and follow-up learning exchange are offered free of charge via our WebEx platform. These opportunities are open to all, so please share the information with your colleagues and networks. Certificates of attendance will be issued to all attendees via email following conclusion of the session.
