The workforce crisis in child welfare is real. Post-pandemic, agencies have reported increased difficulty attracting and retaining qualified staff, with estimates of turnover up to 60% in some agencies. At the same time, child welfare systems are struggling to move services further upstream toward prevention, address longstanding racial inequities, and build ways to learn from those with lived experience in their systems. Child welfare agencies, families, and communities are facing challenges as they try to juggle each of these priorities.

But what if the intersection of these challenges is the key to overcoming them? Join us for a webinar exploring how viewing these efforts holistically may reshape the way we think about the child welfare workforce.

  • Hear about current trends and factors influencing the child welfare workforce.
  • Consider how efforts toward prevention, racial equity, and integrating lived experience are intertwined with workforce efforts and necessary for transformation.
  • Hear directly from two jurisdictions who are testing these ideas by redesigning their systems and redefining success.
