In Conversation: Recognizing and Disrupting Systemic Racism in Social Work Practice

September 3, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics stipulates that one of the ethical principles that must guide social workers is to challenge social injustice. During this event, social workers across fields will share where and how they notice and perpetuate systemic racism and how they work to disrupt it. 

Although this event highlights social work, everyone is welcome to attend and participate. We all have a role in dismantling racism.
