    Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 1:00 PM until 2:00 PMCentral Daylight Time

    Engaging effectively in anti-racist work requires social work professionals to understand how racial identities develop and function. In this webinar, NWU professors Kara Cavel and Toni Jensen will use Janet Helms’ model of White Identity Development to guide participants to:

    • Understand how white identities develop
    • Explore the beliefs and actions tied to white identity
    • Spot the unique developmental stages of white identity

    These master teachers will deepen your understanding of how racial identity development impacts social work.
