Join a live case study discussing active agency transformation projects. Hillsborough County, Florida, has historically high rates of child removal. Investing in a community-wide data sharing platform for early identification and intervention aligned with their Family Preservation Model is transforming how agency and community partners operate and are viewed as a possible statewide model. Learn about the power of actionable data and strategies for tough conversations about privacy, bias, and social responsibility. As agencies also struggle in a tight labor market with impending legacy retirements, new strategies for attracting, training, and retaining talent are necessary. How will your agency cope with this loss of institutional knowledge? Learn how the State of Maryland is using technology and efficiency to drive workforce strength. Partnership between Medicaid, Child Welfare agencies and CMS is imperative. Hear CMS discusses how integrated efforts across human services programs and related workforce initiatives can fully leverage federal funding support.
