Join the Children’s Bureau and the Capacity Building Center for States for this year’s Child Welfare Virtual Expo (Virtual Expo), Effectiveness in Child Welfare: Our Role in Improving the Lives of Children and Families.

Child welfare agencies and legal professionals (like you!) play an important role as contributors to critical thinking, knowledge building, research and evaluation, and ways to improve outcomes for children and families. During the Virtual Expo, we will explore strategies that you and your colleagues can use to strengthen your practice through the collection and use of data, and will discuss how evidence can be used to enhance collaboration with families, empower family and youth voice, and change organizational culture.

Without leaving your desk, you will have opportunities to:

  • Hear dynamic presentations from a diverse group of national experts, program directors, frontline workers, parents, and youth about what it means to make evidence-based decisions
  • Discuss with peers from around the country ways to elevate the voices of the workforce, youth, and families in evaluation design and interpretation of findings
  • Participate in interactive learning activities focused on practical ways to become a workforce of innovative, data-driven “everyday scientists”
  • Explore ways to help you build a culture of shared inquiry, learning, support, and improvement in your organization and community
  • Visit virtual exhibit booths that feature tools, tips, and resources that can help you present data more effectively to colleagues and stakeholders and include them in the process of creating a shared story about the child welfare system’s successes and challenges

Space at the Virtual Expo is limited. Register now and reserve your virtual seat to participate as an individual, or get a group together to attend and learn together.
