Policy and Practice | December 2022

By Tracy Wareing Evans and Jody Levison-Johnson Partnering to Co-Create a New Leadership Framework for Human Services T he American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) and Social Current 1 (formerly the Alliance for Strong Families and Communities) have a long history of partnering with purpose to advance overall health and well-being across the social sector. Today marks a new milestone in our long-standing partnership as we join efforts to develop a new leadership framework for human services-sector leaders, including community-based and public-sector leaders. The goal of this framework, which will be developed with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), will be to contribute to a sea change in how health and human services leaders work together and across system boundaries to address structural racism; shift power and authentically center community voices; and advance equity, diver sity, and inclusion across the sector and the systems we represent. This effort will build on the advances we have made, both pre- and post-pandemic, and will pave a path forward for a strengthened human services sector that can achieve our goal of helping all Americans reach their full potential.
