Race, Equity and Inclusion

As part of the Strategic Modernization Plan, PCSAO adopted the goal of addressing systemic, root-cause reasons for children and families coming into care; and reducing racial disproportionality and disparities in Ohio’s children services system.

Race, Equity and Inclusion Learning Series

In 2021, PCSAO offered a virtual learning series to directors and senior leaders at member agencies focused on the critical work of race, equity and inclusion (REI). The series was intended to guide internal learning for PCSAs embarking on a journey to better understand racism and racial equity, with the goals of raising participants’ comfort level and competency in topics related to racism, racial equity, the history of racism within the children services system, and creating a more equitable system.
