Voices of Change: Re-Visioning Possibilities for Social Work Leaders
Social Workers have always creatively responded to the needs of others. Fellow alum, Katrina Huff-Larmond, will discuss how she is utilizing the interdisciplinary roots of the field to broaden the Social Work landscape, including how it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Social workers will experience how a black social worker used her intersectional identities to create systems of care for historically marginalized and oppressed communities. Social workers will learn how to utilize ecological model theory to create public policies to increase access to services. Social Workers will understand how redefining roles and creating unique opportunities to go beyond traditional approaches to services (e.g. case management, community organization, clinical treatment, child welfare, etc.) enhance service provision in light of COVID-19.
