TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20

1) REGISTER HERE for MOVEMENT ECOLOGY WITH ALWIYAH SHARIFF from 10:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. (2 CEs)

This session will explore how organizations with different theories of change can recognize each other's strengths and weaknesses and work together to produce large-scale social change. Participants will be provided with skills, tools, and confidence to identify complex layers of approaches in social movement. Movement Ecology is important for all organizers and activists to understand. It allows all of us to be seen, heard, and valued.

Objectives

  • Understand different theories of change within social movements.
  • Identify strengths of and weaknesses of different approaches to social change.
  • Articulate the theory of change in which participants are currently practicing.
  • Explain what approach to social change most resonates with personal values.

2) REGISTER HERE for DON’T SHARE THAT! INFORMATION LITERACY AND SOCIAL WORK ETHICS WITH STEVE DAVID from 2:00 P.M. - 3:00 P.M. (1 ETHICS CE)

Technology has significantly changed how we engage in democracy. A focus on consumption of social media becomes even more important in an environment characterized by rapidly evolving global co-occurring crises. Without the tools and skills to determine the quality of information we consume and share, we are at risk of spreading (mis)information purposefully designed to manipulate our views and opinions.

As social workers, we must keep our ethical responsibilities central as we wade through, disseminate, and engage with information. The code of ethics affirms our obligation to “not participate in, condone, or be associated with dishonesty, fraud, or deception.” Social workers have an obligation to challenge the information used to inform our personal views and political decisions, and to push back against the attempt to manipulate our views.

Objectives

  • Understand principles in NASW Code of Ethics related to misinformation and political engagements.
  • Identify attributes of media artifacts that may signal they contain falsehoods or misinformation.
  • Articulate strategies to adjust personal media consumption practices to mitigate the spread of misinformation online.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21

3) REGISTER HERE for GET THE FACTS ON SOCIAL WELFARE POLICY WITH MICHELLE JOHNSON MOTOYAMA, SEHUN OH, & WILL PETRIK from 10:00 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. (1 CE)

There is no shortage of opinions about social welfare policy, but are they based on facts? Join our panel of researchers and experts to examine factors and assumptions that shape the social policy landscape, now and in the years ahead. We will explore the data that gets left out of debates about social welfare policy, and how we can use evidence to inform policy decisions going forward.

Objectives

  • Understand common assumptions shaping social welfare policy in Ohio and nationally.
  • Articulate discrepancies between data and intended impact of social welfare policy.
  • Identify evidence based approaches to structuring social welfare policy regarding children and families.

4) REGISTER HERE for CAMPAIGN STRATEGY WITH ALWIYAH SHARIFF from 2:00 P.M. - 4:00 P.M. (2 CEs)
