alexandra's impact

During Alex's summer 2017 Fellowship, she developed a policy and communications framework for Prevent Child Abuse of North Carolina's staff and Board of Directors. This framework linked the five protective factors (Social and Emotional Competence, Knowledge of Parenting & Child Development, Resilience, Concrete Support, and Social Connections) to an array of policy options. Her efforts included conducting broad research, meeting with partner agencies, populating the tool, cataloguing coalition work, conducting a prioritization exercise with the leadership team, and identifying top options and initiatives.
