How Socially and Racially Justice Informed Are Social Work Practitioners?

Friday, January 13, 2023: 7:00 AM-8:00 AM
Camelback A, 2nd Level (Sheraton Phoenix Downtown)

This session is informed by current research findings on the use of social and racial justice in social work education and practice. The study's preliminary results revealed that social workers in general do not have a common definition and operationalization of what social justice means and looks like in the field. This presentation will be an opportunity for a larger audience of social work practitioners to contribute knowledge and information into this research to help our profession better articulate this essential concept of our mission.
