“Building a Future for Families by Transforming Services”
We have an exciting lineup of talented and thoughtful speakers guiding us to explore future trends, share current research, and explain new policy decisions impacting the future of delivering service in California. We welcome the acclaimed futurist Mary O’Hara-Devereaux, who will illuminate the changing landscape of work, family, and society. Using data and analytics, she creates informational forecasts, so leaders are able to make smarter, long-term decisions. Heather Hahn, a researcher at the Urban Institute, will discuss ways to support low-income families through the application of three core principles of mobility: economic success, power and autonomy, and being valued in community.
Because the workforce is dramatically changing, families we serve struggle to adapt to meet these new challenges. We will learn about opportunities as well as barriers for our future workforce from Amar Mann of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, along with Ashley Anglesey and Sandra Hamameh from the California Workforce Development Board. Our State DCSS Director, David Kilgore, will share his all-encompassing vision for the future of the child support program.
To wrap up the day, we’re honored to host Senator Holly Mitchell, who will inspire us into action. She will discuss the next steps in transforming the lives of children and how we can be an integral aspect of the solution.
We look forward to seeing all those attending and presenting Wednesday, March 13, at the Hilton Arden West in Sacramento for a lively day of exploration, discussion, and policy recommendations.
Chair, Jamie Murray, Director, Santa Cruz/San Benito Regional DCSS
