From Understanding to Action: Shifting Power Dynamics to Advance Race Equity
Hear about strategies for authentically partnering with youth, young adults, Tribes, families, and communities of color to inform and improve child welfare research, practice, and policy.
ADA Compliant Video
This video showcases two “fishbowl” discussions (in which groups take turns speaking and listening) between diverse groups of individuals, all of whom come to the table with lived and/or professional child welfare expertise, as well as a deep understanding of racial equity and family engagement. Through conversation with one another, speakers share effective strategies for authentically partnering with youth, young adults, Tribes, families, and communities of color to inform and improve child welfare research, practice, and policy.
Use this video with the CWVE 2021 Discussion Guide, which provides information and activities for each topic, including a description of the topic, reflection questions tailored to the topic, and team activities for child welfare staff and collaborative partners.
