Client Partner / Child Welfare Practice Lead

As a nationally recognized leader in child welfare, Sean has dedicated his career to helping human services agencies create and successfully adopt technology solutions to better serve families and children and improve outcomes.

“While CCWIS innovations hold significant promise, driving improved outcomes in child welfare isn’t about development techniques and new systems. It’s about an enduring focus on increasing capacity to improve the lives of the clients you serve.”

Sean’s Story:

Sean Toole joined Change and Innovation after a 30 year career leading transformation programs with human services agencies. Starting out in New York City, Sean worked with government agencies to adopt new technologies. Sean developed a passion for human services from early work with child welfare case management systems, work that evolved into SACWIS projects around the country. These long-term projects enabled a series of innovations closely aligned with management priorities. This was an important lesson, that technology is most effective when the entire organization is aligned with the goals, objectives and approach, and that strong adaptive leadership is a critical foundation for success.

With a focus on developing long-term relationships based on trust and a desire to challenge the status quo, Sean was influential in developing early analytics, mobility, and enterprise case management tools for clients in Texas, New York, Georgia, Kansas, Florida, Iowa, Nebraska and elsewhere around the country to deliver lasting change.

At C!A, Sean focuses on delivering significant improvements for child welfare agencies through capacity development and exploration of new automated insight tools to better serve families and improve outcomes for children in care.
