DEI Media Archives

Welcome to the DEI Media Archives of the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) at the Columbia School of Social Work (CSSW). Below you will find fully captioned video recordings of previous events – lectures, workshops, conversations, celebrations – hosted by our office as well as the student-led Professional Development & Self-Awareness (PDSA) initiative. We encourage you to engage with the content with intention, and hope that the wisdoms may inform your deeper understanding of current events and issues related to power, race, oppression and privilege.
