A safe space for participants to have discussions on the themes of bias and race, and to explore and reflect on their own experiences.
Time & Location

About the Event
Open to all social work practitioners across Adult and Children's Services within the West Midlands Social Work Teaching Partnership. Please see our Partner organisations below.
In this session we will explore why race has become such a difficult subject to talk about, we will explore what race is and investigate when it started to be used by society and how this journey has shaped modern perceptions and attitudes towards race. We will also explore what causes bias and investigate the ways that we can combat it.
By the end of the course the learner will gain a better understanding of
- How privilege works.
- What causes Bias and how to address it.
- What race is & why it is used to categorise people.
- The impact of micro aggressions.
- What are racist narratives?
Facilitator: Delroy Madden, a Diversity Equality & Inclusion Consultant and Chief Executive of DM Consultancy Services.
