5th Annual School Social Work Conference: Building Cultural Humility

June 6, 2019 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Organizer


Conference Overview

School social workers are often called to accomplish a myriad of tasks that may go beyond the scope of their work. With limited resources and support, they transform individuals, systems, and situations. Sometimes it feels like they are performing magic, but their secret is a proven toolkit of social work practices. A central component of this toolkit is cultural humility, an approach through which social workers can navigate between fostering home/school collaboration and encouraging anti-racist practices inside and outside the school. Now in its fifth year, the School Social Work Conference, to take place Thursday, June 6th, will build upon its foundation of creating liberatory spaces of learning and networking by examining the role of cultural humility to ameliorate inequality in communities. The conference will provide space for discussion, new learning, and community building.
