Has your agency or department been hesitant to start because you have concerns about these, or maybe worried about negative comments from disgruntled individuals? Is it even worth it? Join us for a webinar to learn what agencies and courts have in their policies to protect the caseworkers, children, and families in their use of these new technologies.
Amelia Burke, Senior Director of Digital Media at Westat, will set the stage by discussing her experience in the field of digital & social media for public health. She will review some best practice basics and discuss how to successfully plan and implement your social media program, i.e. who should be responsible for your social media policy (Hint – it is not the Legal department, nor the IT department). Next up, Pat Rhoads, Social Media Specialist at AdoptUSKids and Brian Gregg,Chief Communications Officer from Hamilton County (Ohio) Department of Job and Family Services will discuss the benefits from creative uses of social media tools and how they have set up their policies. We will also point you to some online resources, including a social media resource guide being developed by NRC-CWDT and moderate questions at the end of the presentation.
