Professor Samuel Bradley Jr., who oversees the EJI committee, has created a new certificate program that will prepare you as a social worker to direct equity, justice, and inclusion programs at colleges, public agencies, and companies in the private sector. The certificate launches in Fall 2021.
The program is comprised of three courses:
Re-thinking Diversity: Systems of Oppression and Privilege
Explores the root causes and consequences of oppression and privilege based on race, ethnicity, age, gender, identity, ability, religion, and sexual orientation.
Creating the Inclusive Workplace
Discusses strategies to train their colleagues to promote inclusivity in the workplace. Examines ways to reshape hiring practices to increase diversity.
Dismantling Organizational Bias
Prepares students to manage diverse teams, resolve conflicts in the workplace, and coach executives to integrate equity, justice, and inclusion into their business practices.
