Webinar - Stay Sleep or Get Woke: Leading Anti-Racist Assessment & Action in Schools
April 8, 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
This webinar addresses school social workers’ critical commitment to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in K-12 schools to successfully guide their own schools in embracing anti-racist policies and practices. We highlight the unique positionality, training, mission, and mandates of social workers within a school’s specific ecosystem that make us well-positioned to lead in this effort. We provide strategies on how to conduct a cultural assessment and how school social workers can embrace the continuous process of advancing and embedding anti-racist policies and practices into the core fabric of our work in schools. Using multi-tier systems of support (MTSS) framework with case examples from our own practice experiences at each tier, we provide concrete tools and a simple six step process to guide school social workers in advancing anti-racist policies and practices in their own schools. This webinar is eligible for 1 CEU.
