The campus community is invited to the next installment of the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences’ Anti-Racism Workshop Series: Facing and Confronting Racism in Social Work Research, Teaching and Practice. The next session, titled “Confronting Systematic Racism in Administrative Data,” will be held Nov. 20 at 11 a.m.
Staff and faculty at the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development have been engaged in examining how and where systematic racism exists in administrative data. They have used a toolkit developed by the Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) at the University of Pennsylvania as a guide to help them understand and examine where and how systematic racism exists and to discuss ways to address these issues in their research.
In conjunction with the national dialogue on the need to address racism in the United States and in acknowledgement of the role that social workers, social work researchers and educators play in addressing racism in America, the Mandel School is holding this series of workshops to focus on facing and confronting racism in social work.
Members of the community are welcome to share their ideas for future workshops and presenters, as this is an evolving process that will adapt to the needs of the participants. Contact Nancy Rolock at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and suggestions.
