General Information

This annual meeting was an opportunity for Division of Maternal and Child Health Workforce Development (DMCHWD) grantees to convene and network around a cross-cutting topic of interest. The meeting was hosted by AUCD's Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC).


The meeting reviewed the MCH Leadership Competency 11: "Working with Communities and Systems." This included relevant definitions, knowledge areas, and foundational/advanced skills for professionals across all disciplines.


We heard from three highlighted grantees who shared examples of comeplling, innovative and/or impactful work that was aligned with this competency. They shared strategies on implementing the competency within their Programs and supporting the development of the foundational and advanced skills to working with communities and systems. The full agenda, recording, and transcript are found on the right. We also provided a notetaking template for those who are joinining asynchronously to help attendees identify applicable strategies.


The  presenters representing MCHB workforce development grantees were:
