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.
