Online Certificate in Dismantling Oppression

The Certificate in Dismantling Oppression is designed for social workers and other professionals who seek to interrupt interpersonal and institutional patterns that perpetuate systemic oppression, and to encourage practices that promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice.

Cohort members will join with their peers and instructors to explore and apply course concepts to intervene at micro, mezzo, and macro levels of practice.

At the end of this six-week program, participants will be prepared to promote ongoing engagement in anti-oppressive practices and to become leaders for change within their respective teams or organizations.

Participants will complete 12 live interactive online social work continuing education hours including one hour of ethics. This program meets the Michigan Public Health Code implicit bias training standards (R 338.7004) required for licensure or license renewal.
