Meet Our Speakers

Corey Best  Session 1 Presenter

Corey Best is first, a dedicated father. He is originally from Washington, D.C., and currently calls Florida home, where he began his transformation into adaptive leadership training, community organizing, authentic family engagement, race equity, primary prevention, and highlighting “good enough parenting” for those impacted by the child welfare system.

Corey is commonly known as a leader and skilled facilitator, bringing his professional experiences to life by activating group thinking and guiding sustainable child welfare system advancements. He was granted the 2016 Casey Family Programs Excellence for Children Award for his innovative style and approach. Most recently, he has helped to spearhead an authentic family engagement pilot through the lens of race equity. This work has allowed Corey to take leadership to the next level. He believes a leader must have a set of values and behaviors that embrace differences, shared power, and social contribution to see lasting changes within our communities.

Corey is certified in the Children's Trust Fund Alliance's Bringing the Protective Factors Framework to Life in Your Work. In addition to several speaking and technical assistance opportunities, he serves as the Community Curator at Mining For Gold, LLC. In short, Corey’s mission is to positively impact the lives of children, families, and communities through safe and racially equitable relationships.
