Learn how careers in social work are making a difference in society! You're invited to join the Mandel School for our 2023 Impact Talk series—four excellent opportunities to be inspired by our faculty and their specializations.
Current Mandel School students can receive one PD hour for each Impact Talk they attend. One CEU will be offered for everyone else, pending application approval.
Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees, and prizes will be raffled off to those attending online and in-person (two 10-inch Samsung Galaxy tablets and four bluetooth wireless earbuds).
America the Beautiful and Violent: The Response of Social Work to Anti-Black Racism
America the Beautiful and Violent: The Response of Social Work to Anti-Black Racism will illuminate how major social policy and practice in the U.S. has created Black racialized poverty and trauma, resulting in a higher disease burden and social disadvantage born by Black Americans. It will highlight important steps the social work profession can adopt to promote an anti-Black racist approach aimed at furthering racial and social equality.
