NASW Chicago District Cultural Competence CEU event sponsored by Gentle Home Services and held at The SelfHelp Home. Thursday, July 30, 2015, 5:30-8:00pm
Becoming an Anti-Racist Social Worker: An Introduction.
Despite advances in race relations the past several decades, institutional racism continues to impact both access to and quality of services provided to people of color. Institutional racism contributes to disparities in mental health, education, employment, HIV/AIDS rates, poverty rates and more. Having the language and analysis to better understand our clients' experience and advocate against institutional racism when needed is crucial. This 1.5-hour CEU workshop will focus on practical examples of institutional racism in the 21st Century to improve participants' analysis as well as provide strategies for becoming an anti-racist social worker who effectively advocates for equality and social justice.
