Decolonising social work practice

10/13/2021 14:15 - 15:15

This session aims to provide a safe place for participants to share experiences and concerns relating to Black Lives Matter and the decolonising of social work practice, within the overarching context of promoting anti-racist practice. Attend for:

  • An exploration of the meanings of words that are in common usage but carry powerful messages, such as gesture politics and moral positioning.
  • A focus on the challenges of eradicating colonial influences, racism and discrimination within social work.
  • Recommendations for social work organisations and teams to make progress on anti-racism.
