2017 Symposium on Fairness and Equity Issues in Child Welfare Training and Education

Equity from the Start

May 10, 2017 | University of California, Berkeley

Since 2003, the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) has hosted a series of symposia to achieve greater equity, responsiveness, and social justice in child welfare practice. Each symposium has provided a statewide forum for sharing training and education strategies for workforce development in the delivery of high-quality, equitable services in California.

This year's theme, Equity from the Start, has two intended meanings: 

  1. equity from the first contact between a family and the child welfare system, and
  2. equity from the very start of life.
