L.A. County’s Virginia “Ginger” Pryor To Lead Abt’s Child and Family Well-Being Practice

Rockville, Md.  –  Nationally recognized expert Virginia “Ginger” Pryor is bringing more than 30 years of experience leading child welfare and human services policy initiatives, programs, and agencies to Abt Associates as the leader of Abt’s Child and Family Well-Being practice. She will be providing clients with technical assistance in the implementation of systems improvement methods, change management, adaptive leadership development, and more, ultimately devising new holistic organizational approaches for public and private organizations. All of this will be targeted toward cross-sectoral systems transformation and strengthening, using a social determinants of health-approach to promote positive outcomes for children and families.

Before joining Abt, Pryor served as the Acting Director and the Chief Deputy Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. There, she oversaw all business operations and programmatic services. She previously served as the Director of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services, where she managed the Child Welfare Department and the Office of Family Independence.

“To truly achieve equity and improve the well-being of children, we need to transform the systems that are intended to implement it,” said Christine Tappan, Abt principal associate. “Ginger has the know-how and passion to help our clients and partners make those systemic changes that will create communities where all people can thrive.”
