Description

Please join us for our second Task Force meeting in Orlando, April 2018 which will be conducted by professional from the Build Initiative again.

Background Information:

The task force was created in November 2016 and has approximately 40 members from the OEL and the ELCs. On May 24th, professionals from the Erickson Institute and Build Initiative conducted a training on equity for the task force and OEL executive and extended leadership. One main conclusion from the meeting is that, in order to further advance its goals, the task force needs each ELC to be represented and engaged.

At the beginning, the focus of the work was to identify a theoretical framework and equity statement . Our next steps are to focus on the equity challenges that our state faces. With this in mind we would like to combine input from each member of the task force for the identification of goals and tools to create a set of best practices and policies that support and promote equitable change in how we serve children, families, providers and communities.
