Assessing how well an organization or agency is engaging families is a critical step in achieving these goals.

Join us as we explore this framework, share models of success and discuss common barriers to incorporating meaningful family engagement in systems-level initiatives. It is recommended that attendees read the issue brief prior to the event.
