2022 Social Work Month Keynote

Presented by the Kent School Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Hear from artists Hannah L. Drake and Josh Miller of IDEAS xLab about the role of culturally-responsive and community-based efforts for sustaining anti-racism work. Their talk will challenge us to reconcile the past, focus on the present, and direct our efforts to creating change for future generations. We'll hear how artists and leaders can work together to improve health and wellbeing while changing our relationship to one another, and our understanding of what it takes to be anti-racist.
