Conversations Across Social Disciplines - Laboring for Social Justice: Social Work, Labor Organizing, and the Changing Nature of Work »
October 12, 2017 - 3:30pm to 6:00pm
The 2017 symposium explored tensions and affinities between organized labor, the profession of social work, and other social justice movements. Panelists traced the histories of the professionalization of social work and the American labor movement from intersectional and critical perspectives, asking: How have organizing efforts to advance economic equality simultaneously exacerbated racial and gender inequalities? Why have social workers been largely absent from the American labor movement? How is social work positioned to respond to the changing nature of work - related to automation, the decline in manufacturing, the disappearance of welfare, neoliberal economic policies, and an expanding service sector and gig-economy - and how might social workers and labor organizers contribute to a reimagined and revitalized labor movement?
