How Are The children?
...the question we use to guide transformational systems change in all we do. It includes the following components of action:
Complex Adaptive Systems Thinking: Adapting rules to address the whole system, it’s intersections and relationships between the parts that affect children, youth and families.
Shifting Mental Models: Checking in on how our assumptions, beliefs and generalizations may cause harm and shifting our behaviors and
actions to repair and restore trust.
Vision and Power Sharing: Growing cross cultural and inter-disciplinary partnerships and connections to share power, bust barriers and heal relationships in order to change policies, practices and how resources flow.
Personal Investment in Equity: Deepening our commitment to consciously address the circumstances and conditions that keep children, youth and families from experiencing the fullness of health,learning, safety and security.
Community and Peer Learning: Aligning, supporting and developing the capacities of every network to create and sustain meaningful impact.
