UT Child Welfare Conference

February 28 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Join us for the 2020 UT Child Welfare Conference

There is space at the table. Making room for diversity, inclusion and belonging

A person’s definition of belonging comes from their own experiences. Working in the child welfare field helps us to recognize that children and families in the foster care system are often caught between worlds and do not always feel included. As a child welfare practitioner, researcher, or advocate, it is essential that we learn more about diverse experiences and gain knowledge about all the people involved in the process, including foster parents, biological parents, caseworkers, child advocates, and our children. It is for this reason that we are focusing on giving everyone a seat at the table in child welfare at the 2020 UT Child Welfare Conference, hosted by the Texas Institute for Child & Family Wellbeing.
