Leadership Academy for Middle Managers

LAMM logo

The Leadership Academy for Middle Managers is a national leadership development academy for middle managers in public, tribal and privatized child welfare systems. Based on the NCWWI leadership model, LAMM is a culturally responsive learning program for experienced state and tribal child welfare mid-level managers. Its goal is to enhance the ability of middle managers to apply leadership skills for implementation of sustainable systems change to improve outcomes for children, youth and families.

The LAMM increases the effectiveness of child welfare agencies by enabling managers to address persistent complex challenges requiring adaptive, distributive, and inclusive leadership. It offers managers the latest research and new directions for child welfare practice, leadership, workforce development, succession planning and management from academic, private, and nonprofit sectors.

The LAMM is coordinated by the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute and is a service of the Children’s Bureau.
