This session will highlight a collection of strategies for building a culturally responsive workforce based upon the Texas Model for Addressing Disproportionality & Disparities, a framework that encompasses (1) data-driven strategies; (2) leadership development; (3) culturally competent workforce development; (4) community engagement; (5) cross-systems collaboration; (6) comprehensive training systems defined by anti-racist principles; and (7) a systems-wide understanding of the history of institutional racism and its impact.

Presenters will detail the Model’s key components, implementation, and outcomes, as well as share specific workforce development innovations designed to infuse cultural responsiveness into all program areas, interventions, and practice enhancements throughout the state. Finally, the presenters will offer lessons learned and tips for agencies seeking to build a culturally responsive workforce and eliminate disproportionality and disparities in their own child welfare organizations and systems.
