The Intersection of Ethics & Racial Equity 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET

Overview

As social workers, we are reminded that the NASW Code of Ethics provides an important baseline as it relates to social justice and our ethical responsibilities in working to achieve racial equity. The Code states that social workers must pursue social change with efforts focused primarily on issues of poverty, unemployment, discrimination, and other forms of social injustice. Directly confronting racism at the individual, agency, and institutional levels is the antiracist mandate we all must embrace. This session will discuss the many ways of using the Code as a guidepost, dismantling systems of oppression, taking action against white supremacy culture, and being leaders in the movement for racial justice.

Break 3:30 pm - 3:45 pm ET

Racial Equity through the Clinical Lens 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm ET

Overview

Advancing racial equity through a clinical lens promotes equity, health and wellbeing. Social workers work towards cultural competency and strive to end discrimination, oppression, poverty, and other forms of social injustice. Social workers approach clients with cultural humility, take on strength based approaches to build rapport and deliver evidence based interventions. This session will focus on efforts to foster therapeutic relationships that do not replicate systems of oppression and advance racial equity in the clinical social work setting.
