The Black Administrators in Child Welfare invite you to join us as we approach 50 years of making a difference in the lives of African American children and families!
Our motto remains "Child Welfare is everybody's business..." what we have learned over the years is that a healthy community produces healthy families, and healthy families produce healthy children.
This symposium will unpack child well-being through a wholistic approach, and dismantle silo infrastructure to shift the paradigm regarding social and cultural norms that are embedded within systems to ensure the safety, permanence, and well-being of African American children in child welfare systems.
The participants will gain insight as it relates to each sectors' responsibility in the development of healthy children. We will glean viable strategies that impact racial disproportionality, and valuable methods to affect systemic change around young men and boys, social justice, and leadership development in (education, child welfare, behavioral health, physical health) systems.
This Symposium will focus on the challenges that we face in the African American community, and seek to advance real solutions advancing leadership and administrative solutions as we head into the next 50 years of strong strategies for change in child welfare.
