Description

Please join us for a one-of-a-kind forum featuring a panel of national, state, and local experts who understand the safety needs of children as well as the organizational behaviors that can foster or impede a culture of safety. This free forward-looking forum will help you consider the policies, programs, and practices that keep children safe. The panelists will draw on the lessons and implications from tragedies at Penn State and other organizations that work with youth. Following the presentations there will be an open forum in which participants will have an opportunity to share concerns and perspectives on the role of organizations in protecting children from harm.
