training and Capacity Building WORKING GROUP

We will build our workforce through evidence-based practices and capacity building opportunities that address the needs and concerns of our equity groups with special sensitivity to ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, the physically challenged, class, age, and religion. In the OCOF framework, equity groups include American Indian/Native Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, Black/African Americans, Latina/Latino within the City and County of San Francisco.

  • San Francisco will support and promote curriculum that is designed to build capacity and skills in the San Francisco workforce to recognize, understand, support, and provide services to children, youth and families that promote equitable access and opportunities.

  • San Francisco will come together with a common narrative that states the conditions/social determinants and institutional practices that have contributed to structural, socio-cultural and historical disenfranchisement of San Francisco equity groups.

  • San Francisco will highlight the strengths, resilience, spirituality and rich culture of its families and communities, and in doing so promote the diversity of the lived experience.

The Working Group will meet five times in FY18
