Racism, bias and well-being in social services work

We are now accepting registrations for individual sessions (2nd and 9th March) at a cost of $55 (excl GST) per webinar for SSPA members and $65 (excl GST) for non-members.

Anton Blank (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu) has developed a training programme in partnership with an Auckland based SSPA member, ATWC. This programme is designed specifically for social service organisations and is offered as a series of 3 one-hour webinars plus a 4th review session covering:

1. The impact of racism and bias in the social services setting, and using tools to identify and mitigate personal and organisational attitudes
2. Kaupapa Māori well-being theory and its practical application
3. Applying the theory, models and tools in a practical way within our organisations
4. Developing a strategy to embed the model across your organisation.

The positive, non-confrontational approach to racism moves beyond grievance to focus on the capabilities and potential in workers and whānau. It takes a whole of organisation approach and is open to and encourages participation from all staff.

The first three webinars will be held on consecutive Tuesday mornings from 10-11.00am
• Tuesday 23 February 2021
• Tuesday 2 March 2021
• Tuesday 9 March 2021

The fourth session, a review webinar, will be convened 4th May to explore how your organisational strategy is being implemented.

There is a cost of $190 (excl GST) for SSPA members and $220 (excl GST) for non-SSPA members for participation in the full programme of three webinars plus a review session. We encourage registration in all sessions to gain the full benefit.
