NCCJ St. Louis is bringing its serious education to leaders in children’s mental and behavioral health across St. Louis County. Under a contract with the St. Louis County Children’s Service Fund (CSF), NCCJ will tailor its powerful Inclusion Institute curriculum for senior-level management for the organizations that CSF funds. The Inclusion Institute creates an intentional learning community around diversity, inclusion, equity, and cultural competence, and will build leadership to address these things in organizations that touch the lives of children in St. Louis County.
“CSF is thrilled to embark on this process and recognizes by strengthening our leaders, we strengthen our community. We are looking forward to working with NCCJ and their professional staff in this remarkable leadership opportunity.”
Representatives from selected agencies will begin the process with a 3-day leadership retreat in the fall, and reconvene for planning workshops through the beginning of 2018. The Inclusion Institute process will create a network of leaders focused on inclusion, equity, and cultural competency, and pursuing change in their corner of the children’s services field.
