This event has a limited capacity, so please register early to ensure a spot.
The webcast will once again bring together organizational, federal, and academic leaders in addition to teachers, principals, school resource officers, students, and parents to continue the national conversation about bullying prevention. Although the webcast continues the discussion started at the summit, it also allows us the opportunity to invite new voices to the conversation and to expand the discussion on bullying beyond what was previously presented.
For the last several months, the U.S. departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Justice, Interior, Defense, and Agriculture have developed a strategy for the broader administration vision for keeping our students safe. The Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Working Group has thus far developed a set of goals to combat bullying and is actively working on action steps to advance these goals. Join the conversation and share your ideas.
The webcast will include an introduction to research and prevention strategies by Catherine Bradshaw from Johns Hopkins University, a leading researcher in bullying and school climate. It will also feature "voices from the field," a panel featuring people currently involved in bullying prevention efforts discussing their roles in bullying prevention in addition to the successes and the challenges they have faced. Assistant Deputy Secretary Kevin Jennings of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, U.S. Department of Education, and Captain Stephanie Bryn of the Health Resource Service Administration, Health and Human Services, will discuss the ongoing work of the Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Working Group.
