This event is for FIFSW students only. 

The MSW Truth and Reconciliation Student Collective, with the support of the FIFSW GSA, is hosting a 2-part workshop on Decolonizing Social Work: Unveiling a Path Towards Equity & Empowerment.

Join us for a 2-part workshop facilitated by Shane Young, a Two-Spirit Mi’kmaw social work educator, scholar and PhD Candidate. Framed through an Indigenous lens and insights of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), this learning experience is dedicated to unveiling the profound impact of colonialism on social work and navigating strategies for decolonizing practice. Actively engage in discussions, case studies, and practical examples.
