2021 Family Engagement and Cultural Effectiveness Conference

October 20 @ 12:00 pm - October 22 @ 5:00 pm

The 2021 Family Engagement and Cultural Effectiveness Conference is designed to celebrate the different cultures, traditions, and practices that are reflected in the modern family. In doing so, participants learn how to use the strengths and attributes of culture to aid a child’s own successful walk through the world. Our theme this year is Elevating Families: Exploring Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

In this conference, nationally and internationally known practitioners, researchers, and motivational speakers share their knowledge, to teach us and to learn from us, about parent engagement through the lens of Justice, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Successful Head Start and Early Head Start programs know the power of culture, enlisting families with shared values and goals for the development of their children and themselves. Deeply rooted in the Head Start approach is the goal of building a system that advocates for “self-determination” for parents. From participation in program governing to classroom volunteerism, from parenting education to emergency services, Head Start offers families a comprehensive system of support.

R9HSA’s Family Engagement and Cultural Effectiveness Conference is designed to elevate this wide-ranging agenda through thought leaders, practitioners, and advocates for high-quality and culturally responsive service.
