Leading With Evidence Webinar Series

The Annie E. Casey and William T. Grant foun­da­tions are host­ing a webi­nar on April 25, 2019, to explore how child wel­fare lead­ers can use the Fam­i­ly First Pre­ven­tion Ser­vices Act to achieve equi­table out­comes for chil­dren and families.

Dur­ing the webi­nar ― part of the Lead­ing With Evi­dence: Inform­ing Prac­tice With Research series ― experts will discuss:

  • new fund­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties under the Fam­i­ly First Act for evi­dence-based pre­ven­tion pro­grams that sup­port fam­i­lies and pre­vent the need for fos­ter care;
  • how to use the law to cre­ate more equi­table out­comes when many evi­dence-based pro­grams are not val­i­dat­ed for chil­dren and fam­i­lies of col­or or deliv­ered in the con­text of iden­ti­ty and cul­ture; and
  • how to use the law to engage com­mu­ni­ties, encour­age inno­va­tion and invest in build­ing fur­ther evi­dence to pro­mote equity.
