Area Administrators from Department of Children, Youth, and Families will come together for education, professional development and inspiration-level sessions that aim to support the daily work they do as well as their roles as leaders.
The theme of the event is “Holding on to Hope” with content focusing on resiliency and retaining hope during challenging times. Topics will include leadership in the context of crisis; the importance of taking care of oneself mentally; and how to continue the important conversations around racism, bias and equality within their work and with their teams.
This focus is directly relevant to serving children in care because the AAs are the leaders who set goals and culture within each office. Everything they do has a multiplying effect. Their preparedness, education and ability to support their staff is directly tied to the service level to the community. They need to be mentally supported themselves and able to lead effectively. These sessions will also offer tactical tools, such as having conversations around bias, which will inform practice down to the front-line workers.
