Pre-Conference Director Only Training
Hyatt Regency Columbus
This will be the first time in many years that we will be offering an in-person, director-level training the day before our Annual Training Conference instead of a General Session (though who is invited to attend mirrors that of quarterly membership meetings) and are excited about the agenda we have developed. Given the nature of the training and capacity limitations, a virtual option will not be made available.
Please note that attendance at this training requires a registration separate from conference and thanks to robust sponsorship this year, we can offer the training free of charge to directors or their proxy with each additional attendee be charged a $50 fee following the event.

1:45PM – 2:30PM Using Tech to Tackle Implicit Bias in Service Delivery
How can we take on implicit bias without putting families and children at greater risk? The answer could be using virtual reality technology to replicate experiences caseworkers have in the field. Seven jurisdictions are already using the Accenture Virtual Experience Solution (AVEnueS) to support recruitment and retention and bolster caseworker confidence. Now Accenture has a new scenario devoted specifically to the issue of race equity. Learn how this scenario helps users reflect on how their own bias affects decision making. Hear what cumulative user data can teach us about moments when decision making falls along a color line. In short, discover how AVEnueS uses tech to shift the way an entire field of work impacts black and brown children across the country.
Presented By: Molly Tierney (Accenture Public Service), Jeffery Van Deusen (Deputy Director, Office of Families and Children)
