The 2018 Parenting Education Symposium is an active, engaging forum where participants will discuss, share, and contribute to the creation of a workforce development plan that includes family professionals. The forum will address at least four components (listed in the tabs below) that could be included in the workforce plan. Topic presentations by experts in the field will be followed by group discussion and sharing. The overall goal is to emphasize the importance of the quality and development of professionals who work with families while also collaboratively generating ideas and strategies that will enhance and transform the Minnesota workforce.
