Part 1 serves as a prerequisite for parts 2 and 3. If able, please commit to engaging in all 3.
Webinar objectives are:
Exploring the complexity of anti-black racism, and the interconnectedness of oppressions.
Identifying layers of racism: systemic, cultural, institutional and individual.
Creating the connections between layers of racism and the manifestations of racism in the lives of black Canadians.
Learning how to apply this knowledge to your social work practice.
This introduction to anti-black racism provides an overview of ABR, and why it is important knowledge for social workers. After peeling back the layers of racism (systemic, cultural, institutional and individual) there is a short case study to examine how these layers impact one of the identified manifestations of racism: employment. Senator Bernard gives suggestions for how to incorporate the knowledge learned in this seminar into a wide range of social work positions: frontline, management, policy and research.
