Thank you for your interest in joining us for our Global Child Protector Conference. The objective of the Both Ends Believing is to expand child welfare programs to include and prioritize family-based outcomes for vulnerable children.
Global Child Protector Conference
This one-day Global Child Protector Conference will be hosted following our high-impact two-day global symposium, and will welcome members of the United States government, leaders of non-governmental organizations, child development experts and our global working group of international child welfare officials. The conference will offer insight and perspective from entrepreneurial visionaries using new strategies and methods to solve old problems.
Our gatherings are a forum for best practices in innovation and collaboration, intending to inspire people to think about child welfare differently.
Participants will have the opportunity to interact and form new relationships with colleagues in other countries. These relationships are vital for future collaborations as we work together to produce change.
We are encouraged by the extraordinary progress we have made since our last symposium. Together we are making our shared vision of family-based solutions for vulnerable children a reality.
We hope you can join us in Washington, D.C., for this landmark conference.
