Description

The PhD Student Social Justice Committee together with the SSW Equity Council is hosting & moderating a panel of local representatives of public agencies who currently focus on initiatives to address social justice and racial equity in their institutions. The speaker panel aims to strengthen connections between partners in the community and the UW School of Social Work as institution, and its students, faculty and staff while moving towards racial and social justice and equity.  Join us in sharing perspectives on what is working and discussing how we can learn from the experiences at each institution.

When: Thursday, May 25th 12:00 - 1:00 PM in 305A/B (Lunch will be provided)

Who:
Lamont Green City of Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative
Matias Valenzuela King County Office of Equity and Social Justice
TBD representative from Seattle Public Schools Race and Equity Team Leader

We also hope that connections made through the panel will continue to support the work of those individuals, communities, and institutions in which we are involved as social workers. Finally, we hope that this panel give students who are interested in macro practice a chance to hear about this work in the public sector.  Students across all SSW programs (e.g. BASW, MSW, PhD) are encouraged to attend.

Stay tuned for more updates on this special and timely lunchtime panel event!
