This session will include an overview of a new AdoptUSKids program called the Minority Professional Leadership Development (MPLD). MPDL is an eight month fellowship to increase the leadership competencies of minorities in the field of adoption related to practice, research, and policy through structured courses, on-the job experiences, and peer-to-peer learning.  MPLD will also work to build a sustained network of transformational minority leaders in the field of adoption with knowledge of methods to use and establish evidence in adoption programs.

The discussion will help us learn more about this new initiative. We will want you to share your thoughts and questions about all the steps needed to bring this opportunity forward in your states, and how you can help provide feedback on the construct of this initiative, support the recruitment of fellows, and identify adoption experts that could be good resources as speakers. The webinar will be followed by a facilitated discussion with leaders in adoption.

NOTE: The Child Welfare Leadership Series is a quarterly session for leaders in adoption that is offered exclusively to AEA members. To learn more about joining AEA please visit our website: www.adoptea.org/joinAEA
