Focusing on Race Equity Throughout Change and Implementation
Consider ways to be intentional about advancing race equity while implementing new child welfare programs and practices. This publication includes questions for teams to consider throughout change and implementation processes—from the earliest stages of exploring a problem to identifying solutions to ensuring sustainable implementation.
Child welfare leaders, implementation team members, and technical assistance providers can use the discussion questions to raise awareness, promote reflection, and encourage actions that center equity as a goal within any implementation effort. This publication is part of the Change and Implementation in Practice series and includes relevant questions that align with each of the series’ eight topic areas.
