InstruMENtal – Recognizing the Importance of the Male Role in Child Welfare

InstruMENtal – Recognizing the Importance of the Male Role in Child Welfare

Tuesday, June 29, 2021
2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern Time

June is an important month to reflect on the role males play in protecting and nurturing children regardless of their parenting role (birth, step, resource, adoptive, or caring for their kin).

Based on feedback from our male specific workshop titled: InstruMENtal, many of our national and international colleagues have reported feeling underutilized and overlooked. In particular, as it relates to the decision making and assessment process and providing (and receiving) supports and resources in their communities and the child welfare system.

As child welfare is making a renewed commitment to reimagining services and supports, CWLA is excited to announce a new working group focusing on the male role in child welfare. This working group will identify areas of inclusion that promote equity for males and highlight new approaches that are proving successful in the need for policy and practice change.

CWLA will host an introduction to this new initiative on Tuesday, June 29 from 2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern TimeAll are invited to join and learn more about how you can participate in our nationwide effort to support the male role in child welfare.
