UC Davis Presents: Not Being Racist is no Longer Enough

August 5, 2020

Human Services at UC Davis is pleased to announce a new webinar series for Human Services leaders and staff as    the kickoff to many additional course offerings that support anti-racist    and culturally responsive practice in child welfare, eligibility, Wraparound    and other Human Services programs. Join us each Friday morning in August    from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for a new installment in the series.

A Call to Action


As Human Services professionals, we serve some of the most vulnerable children, youth adults and families, and    this requires that we be informed, willing and committed to “do the work”    of becoming anti-racist in our work and our lives. Not being racist is no    longer enough; we are being called to action to take a strong, sustained    and active stance against racism in all its forms. “Doing the work”    includes the internal work on our own biases and complicity with systems    that create and sustain inequality, as well as the work at an agency and    system level to understand and undo structures that have led to inequity    and disparate impact for children, youth, families and adults who are    people of color.

Webinars in This Series


This is a free training series with    the following four webinars:


  • Foundational Anti-Racist         Practice - August 7: As Human Services         professionals, we have an ethical duty to become actively anti-racist         in our work in order to best serve vulnerable children, youth, adults         and families. This webinar will discuss historical and current events         and definitions related to racism.
  • Disproportionality and         Systemic Racism - August 14: This webinar will         explore how disproportionality and systemic racism show up in Human         Services systems, and strategies for changing this. After attending         this training, participants will understand the history of systemic         racism in the United States in key areas that impact families who         interface with Human Services systems, and also be able to explain how         current examples of systemic racism affect children/youth, adults and         families of color.
  • Implicit Bias and         Microaggressions - August 21: Simply having a         human brain means that we have bias and make assumptions about others,         and research suggests that people can act on the basis of prejudice         and stereotypes without intending to do so. This webinar invites         participants to identify and explore their own biases. It will also         provide effective approaches to overcome them to increase the success         of their work as a helping professional.
  • Allyship - August 28:         Allyship is an active, consistent and ongoing practice in which a         person holding systemic power seeks to end oppression in solidarity         with a group of people who are systemically disempowered. Allyship         emphasizes social justice, inclusion and human rights by recognizing         the experiences of privileged and oppressed groups and acknowledging         that an individual can have identities of both privilege and         oppression simultaneously. This webinar will look at what it means to         be an ally against racism in a Human Services profession.
