February 2024Vol. 25, No. 1New Quality Improvement Center for Workforce Analytics Seeks Project Sites

The Quality Improvement Center for Workforce Analytics (QIC-WA) was recently established to address persistent child welfare workforce challenges with data-driven solutions. Center staff believe that agencies that effectively use their workforce data to improve their operations are best suited to support children and families. The QIC-WA strives to meet organizations where they are and empower them to use their data to determine workforce strategies around topics such as diversity, equity, and inclusion; belonging; recruitment; performance; retention; and well-being. Learn more about the project in this QIC-WA overview document.

The QIC-WA is seeking six sites, including state, county, territorial, and tribal child welfare agencies, interested in workforce analytics and testing evidence-informed workforce strategies. Selected sites will implement a strategy to strengthen their child welfare workforce, use workforce analytics to support decision-making, participate in an evaluation, and engage in tailored capacity building and a peer-learning network. Review the call for sites, FAQs, and recorded webinars on the QIC-WA website to learn more about this opportunity.

Applications are due February 15, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. PT and site selection will be complete by April. Agency leaders can email additional questions to NOTE: Tribal agencies are welcome to apply but will have an adapted application process and timelines, to be posted as a separate tribal agency announcement on the QIC-WA website in early February.
