CWLA's Leadership Award

CWLA's success in leadership and advocacy is based on the excellence of its public and private membership. In recognition of the expertise and commitment of its members, at the 2011 National Conference CWLA will present a new leadership award to the leader who demonstrates exemplary commitment to children and families. Nominees must be employed by a CWLA member agency. Successful candidates will demonstrate the use of intentional influence to facilitate a body of work by an organization, team or person that has resulted in positive outcomes for children and families. In addition, candidates will also demonstrate the following:

  • a commitment to emerging leadership and workforce development to strengthen the overall future of child welfare;
  • a clear and well-communicated vision;
  • a solid knowledge of self;
  • a commitment to organizational and individual learning;
  • the ability to build relationships and trust with colleagues at all levels and in various arenas;

Two Awards will be given: a public agency leader and a private agency leader.
