Workshop Description

Building on alliances and shared struggles, how do we hold space for Racism and Anti-Semitism? How do we, as social workers, promote and embody the practice of solidarity? This workshop will unpack Racism and Anti-Semitism and engage participants in a discussion about building alliances and shared struggles. Participants will explore intersecting identities and develop tools to more authentically engage in clinical practice.

Laura Quiros, PhD, LMSW, is an Associate Professor of Social Work at Adelphi University for the past twelve years. She teaches social work practice at the Doctoral, Masters level and undergraduate levels. Her research and scholarly interests focus on the social construction of racial and ethnic identity and trauma informed care from a social justice lens. The common thread in her consulting, teaching and scholarship is elevating complexity and furthering the mission of social justice, including diversity and inclusion. Dr. Quiros also coaches and trains executive level staff across higher education, corporate, non-profits, and the fashion industry; to dig deep and intimately connect to diversity and inclusion. Some of this work involves gently pushing the boundaries of overcoming the resistance to diversity and inclusion work.
