  1. Building Efficient Meetings and Producing Effective Decisions: Achieve Twice as Much in Half the Time

    November 4, 2021 - 8:30am to 11:45am

    This session shares results from the Meetings Masters/Decision Maestros Research Project intended to help social workers conduct more effective meetings. The first part of the session highlights practices from Meeting Masters, including the Menu Agenda, and the Agenda Bell. Principles of the Meeting Masters help social workers in the four phases of meeting - preplanning, facilitating/running the meeting itself, processing items for the next meeting, and follow up and implementation of decisions and actions. The second portion reviews several examples of "decision rottenosity" and outlines the process of decision crystallization.

  7. Centennial Lecture Series: Our Money & the Financing of Racial (In)Justice Centennial Lecture Series: Our Money & the Financing of Racial (In)Justice

    November 9, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

    We use public money—increasingly in the form of debt—to pay for the services and resources that society needs. Cities and local governments use debt to finance everything from housing and property development, education, and transportation to settling lawsuits in cases of police brutality. Yet the debts that local governments borrow on behalf of their residents have been used to finance racial segregation and White wealth accumulation. Akin to credit scores used by lenders to determine how expensive it is for individual people to borrow money, lenders rate cities with implications for the costs of investing in local communities. For example, when White property is perceived threatened by protests against racial injustice, lenders can ascribe lower ratings to cities and make it more expensive for local governments to finance the services and resources that communities need. These types of financial calculations determine whether and how racialized communities experience marginalization, vulnerability, and abundance.

    This panel conversation with Tamara K. Nopper, Destin Jenkins, and Lua Kamál Yuille considers how public money, and debt in particular, is used to finance racial injustice. We also consider how public money can be used to advance racial justice and to invest generously in the services and resources that communities need. Individually and collectively, these scholars’ deep expertise and extensive works offer compelling reasons to understand the relationships between money and racial (in)justice.

  9. ENGAGE: The Rise of Anti-Asian American Sentiment and Community Resiliency  ENGAGE: The Rise of Anti-Asian American Sentiment and Community Resiliency

    November 11, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

    Anti-Asian American sentiment has spread across the U.S. like an epidemic, rising approximately 360% in 2021 alone. Discriminatory rhetoric used by politicians to describe the pandemic polarized the country and put Asian Americans at risk. However, is Anti-Asian hate truly a new phenomena? What is the history of racism against Asian Americans in this country? And how does it connect to the present discrimination we see? How has this community persevered, with the help of other BIPOC communities, to be strong while they continue to contribute to the fabric of American society? Join us for a lecture connecting the past to the present, and hear about the work of prominent Asian American leaders, activists, and students. Featuring LSA of American Studies Lecturer, writer and author, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang; students from the School of Social Work’s API Coalition; former Assistant Attorney General of Michigan and Executive Director of American Citizens for Justice, Roland Hwang; and MSU Law adjunct faculty and Executive Director of Street Democracy, Jayesh Patel. Students from the API Social Work Student Coalition will also be featured.
