What you’ll learn:
A national conversation has begun in the past few years on the unjust treatment of people of color in systems designed to support and protect. This conversation is contextually significant for the social work profession because of our commitment to social and racial justice. We see this injustice reinforced through the systemic and institutionalized racism present in the disproportionate representation of people of color in multiple systems across the social work spectrum. Implicit racial bias is being studied as one of the sources of this disparate treatment and will be discussed and explored using the lenses of cultural competency and cultural humility.


  • Understand the implications of systemic racism on the disparate treatment of people of color in multiple settings.
  • Gain knowledge on the influence of implicit racial bias on decision making and practice with diverse populations.
  • Apply cultural competency and cultural humility frame-works across practice settings.
