Webinar: Assessing Readiness for Implementation With the Hexagon Tool

Posted September 25, 2018
By the Annie E. Casey Foundation
Watch the fourth installment in the Leading With Evidence webinar series.

A new webi­nar record­ing explores a sim­ple approach designed to help child wel­fare lead­ers assess and select the right evi­dence-based program.

The 60-minute ses­sion, host­ed by the Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foun­da­tions, intro­duces the Hexa­gon Tool. This tool con­tains three pro­gram indi­ca­tors — evi­dence, sup­ports and usabil­i­ty — and three imple­men­ta­tion con­sid­er­a­tions — need, fit and capac­i­ty — that can help lead­ers think about and rank pro­gram possibilities.


Assess­ing Readi­ness for Imple­men­ta­tion: Intro­duc­ing the Hexa­gon Tool is the third install­ment in a four-part webi­nar series. All four ses­sions are based on Lead­ing With Evi­dence con­fer­ences, where child wel­fare lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers work togeth­er to study and advance the use of evi­dence in the child wel­fare field.

Dur­ing the webi­nar, view­ers will hear from:

  • Kim­ber­ly DuMont, the session’s mod­er­a­tor and a senior pro­gram offi­cer with the William T. Grant Foundation;
  • Alli­son Metz, direc­tor of the Nation­al Imple­men­ta­tion Research Net­work at the Uni­ver­si­ty of North Car­oli­na-Chapel Hill; and
  • Alli­son Blake, a senior fel­low at the Casey Foun­da­tion and for­mer com­mis­sion­er for the New Jer­sey Depart­ment of Chil­dren and Families.
