Event Description
In the first of this two-part lecture series, open to the wider public via livestream, Dr. Hardy will show that when dialogues about diversity and power differences are stifled, walls go up between people, which in turn can lead to wars. He will further argue that social workers must have the “will” and the “skill” to facilitate courageous conversations to avoid this kind of outcome.
