Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Lecture and Distinguished Alumni Awards
The Equity, Justice, and Inclusion Lecture is one in a series of events offered each year by the School of Social Work. This year's lecture will be a panel discussion featuring four social workers at different stages in their careers speaking about the complexities of serving others as a male of color in the field of social work.
- Michael Grinnell, MSW ’16, LCSW, Post-Graduate Fellow at Williams College Integrative Wellbeing Services
- Gregory G. Groover, Sr., DMin, MDiv, MSW, Pastor, Historic Charles Street African Methodist Episcopal Church
- Josh McNeil, MSW ’15, LCSW, Behavioral Health Clinician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital
- Desmond Upton Patton, PhD, MSW, Associate Professor of Social Work, Columbia School of Social Work
- Moderated by Professor for Macro Practice Tiziana Dearing
Our hope is for those who attend the event to reflect on their role as advocates for both clients and providers and to learn what they can do as allies in dismantling oppressive systems.
Following the panel discussion, we will honor the recipients of the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Awards, which recognize BCSSW MSW or PhD alumni who have made significant contributions to the social work profession. This year's winners are Tanya Sharpe, PhD ’07, and Lamar Polk, MSW ’09.
