Cultural Competence and Racial Justice: Working to Undo Racism 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET

Overview

This interactive session will focus on the interrelationships between cultural competence and racial justice. Indeed, one cannot achieve culturally competent practice without challenging the “isms” that fuel many of the social conditions that plague this nation. In fact, all of our clients and communities suffer, regardless of their individual racial or cultural identities.  This session will use the NASW Standards and Indicators of Cultural Competence in the Social Work Profession and the NASW monograph, Institutional Racism and the Social Work Profession: A Call to Action, as references to explore how the social work profession can address racism at the micro, mezzo and macro levels. Join this session to engage in the work of undoing racism.
