  1. Half-Baked Brown Bag

    April 23, 2024 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM ET

    Want to know what your colleagues are working on? 

    Want to help them refine their research ideas?

    Want to be more engaged and help build community?

    Come to the Half-Baked Brown Bag lunch series. 

    The associate dean for research is hosting a series for faculty and doctoral students to share their early stage ideas with peers for feedback. Come and contribute to a lively discussion that will benefit the research happening here at the School – it may even help shape how you think about your own work. 

    The format will include a brief presentation from faculty members or doctoral students about their research. Each presentation will be approximately 15 minutes, followed by a 20-30 minute discussion. There will be two participants for each event.

    To keep the discussions more cozy, space is limited to 20 attendees. Pizza and drinks are provided.

  2. Community Conversation - Navigating Divides: Addressing the Clash Between Conservative Views, Faith, Traditions and Modern Day Social Work Values

    April 23, 2024 - 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET

    Join us for a timely discussion titled "Navigating Divides: Addressing the Clash Between Conservative Views, Faith, Traditions, and Modern Day Social Work Values." 

    This conversation will focus on the challenges that social workers with conservative beliefs may face in an increasingly progressive field. We will explore how holding traditional religious or conservative views might impact perceptions of fit and effectiveness within the social work profession. This session is an opportunity to discuss the experiences of feeling excluded due to one's beliefs, the potential for bias, and strategies for navigating professional environments that may feel at odds with personal values.

    This is a time for conversation – to share feelings and experiences and talk together as a community.

    About the format: With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
