        Social Workers Confronting Racial Injustice Conference

        School of Social Work UW Madison

        Admission is free to students, faculty, and staff in the School of Social Work and $25.00 for community members. Lunch is provided and participants can earn 6 CEHs/.6CEUs. Last year, registration filled up quickly so please make a note.

        The Social Workers Confronting Racial Injustice Conference challenges social workers to engage in racial and social justice action. Our goals are to:

        Explore the impact of social policies and social services on racial inequities, including the unintended consequences of these policies and services; 

        Support social workers working toward an increasingly equitable and racially just society; 

        Celebrate the profound social justice actions of our social work community

        For this year’s theme, Womxn in the Forefront, Womxn is spelled with an "x" to be inclusive of trans and non-binary community members.
