The Field Education Office hosted two interactive workshops to deepen analysis and learn tools for anti-racist practice on September 17 and October 2. Becoming an Anti-Racist Social Worker presented by Marion Malcome, PhD, MSW, LCSW and Brit Holmberg, MSW, LCSW, MDiv explored with our community partners  institutional racism in the 21st century and provided strategies for becoming an effective anti-racist social worker at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels.

One participant shared, “This training exceeded my expectations. I was able to gain resources not only for my own professional development but also to encourage growth in students. I felt a new spark of enthusiasm and motivation being able to connect with other supervisors that are outside of my own agency.”

About 75 people participated. The Field Education Office will offer the second part of the workshop this spring. Dates and times will be announced later this fall.
