10-11:30am on Tuesday, June 9 , 2020
This professional webinar will provide an overview of the new Inclusion Through Evaluation Toolkit that was developed by Strategies 2.0 as part of an integrated learning system for California. Many in the family strengthening field are responsible for data entry and analysis regardless of their professional background, training or roles. As a result of this knowledge gap, there is the risk that vulnerable populations are not captured in the analysis, biased reports are generated, and inequity cycle is perpetuated. To address these challenges, the webinar aims to improve data literacy throughout organizations by providing practical steps for both frontline practitioners and leadership.
1-2:30pm on Thursday, June 11
Presenters: Kelly Hardy, Senior Managing Director of Health & Research for Children Now
This interactive webinar will provide an overview of the current legislative and budget situation in California, with a focus on child wellbeing. The state has quickly moved from an expected budget surplus to a significant budget deficit, and legislators have been asked to severely limit the number of bills they are carrying and focus on COVID-19 response. In addition, federal relief funds are being made available, but only for certain issues and programs. Kelly Hardy will lead a discussion about what this means for our children, and what key initiatives are still on the table.
1:30pm-3pm on Tuesday, June 16
Presenters: Dr. Robert Sege & Dr. Dina Burstein, HOPE Project, Tufts Medical Center
Drs. Robert Sege and Dina Burstein from the HOPE Project at Tufts Medical Center will present research and data supporting the benefits and importance of Positive Childhood Experiences (PCEs), background on the HOPE Project, and the relevance to ACEs screening and working with families during COVID-19.
