  10. Community Conversation: Anti-Blackness in Social Work

    February 20, 2024 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

    Social work is a profession where we’re challenged to uphold the ethics of Social Justice and to recognize the Dignity and Worth of All People. However, our profession - like all institutions - has been grounded in white supremacy, and we’ve seen historically how people of color, particularly Black people, have been negatively impacted by social work. From participation in terrible racist experimentation to racially biased licensing exams, social work as a profession has harmed Black clients and practitioners alike. How can we better recognize and challenge the embedded anti-Blackness within our systems? How do we see anti-Blackness seep into our clinical practice, consciously and unconsciously? What are some of the challenges or conflicts that exist, if any, to dismantling anti-Blackness in social work, and what are some of the commitments you want to make to overcome them?
