Advancing Racial Equity 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET

Overview

Racism is both a micro (personal level) and macro (institutional and structural) issue. Advancing racial equity and inclusion can sometimes seem to be a daunting task. Social workers have long been leaders in efforts to combat racism, fight economic injustice, reverse health disparities and champion racial equality. Social workers understand cultural and ethnic diversity and strive to end discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice. This session will focus on efforts to advance racial equity and end racism through public education, social justice advocacy and professional training.
