Providing Technical Assistance Resources

OSEP Hosts National Summit and Launches New Attract, Prepare, Retain Resource Page

The 2020 OSEP Summit provided an opportunity by bringing together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event was held over three days and participants had the opportunity to register for each event individually or attend all three.  An archive of the event can be found on the 2020 OSEP National Summit webpage.  OSEP also launched a new Attract, Prepare, Retain Resources Page that provides research and resources for stakeholders to explore potential strategies, innovative approaches, and additional resources regarding this topic!
