CalWORKs 2021: Working Toward Equity & Recovery

The theme for the CalWORKs Training Academy establishes a frame through which many topics related to the program may be considered. In choosing the theme for 2021, two ideas were most prevalent as we looked back on 2020. Current events in our nation brought to light the historic, systemic and systematic disadvantaging of peoples of color. It is with sincere vigor that we urge a lens of equity be applied to all aspects of the CalWORKs program. Simultaneously, the economic downturn that resulted from mandated closures and quarantine must be a focus as we work toward economic recovery.
