This Academy was hosted by DWD and the Center on Wisconsin Strategy (COWS) to deliver practical tools and first-hand experiences with different models in making these critical partnerships work.

The day’s agenda featured a welcome by DWD Deputy Secretary JoAnna Richard and national experts, Julie Strawn and Amy Ellen Duke-Benfield, from the Center for Law & Social Policy CLASP). Policy Advisor Anne Rodgers-Rhyme updated attendees on the status of this growing initiative in Wisconsin and shared updates on grant awards as well as positive outcomes.
