BU SSW Emerging Scholars Colloquium: Social Work, Climate & Environmental Justice

Climate change is the defining crisis of our time. While social work scholars and practitioners have long committed to improving conditions for the oppressed populations and communities most affected, there is a critical need for more research about the human dimension of the climate crisis. In order to address the negative consequences of environmental injustice and ecocide, social work needs to develop effective policy, mitigation, and adaptation efforts through a multifaceted response based in interlocking principles of equity, sustainability, mitigation, resilience, and justice. In support of this work, the Boston University School of Social Work (BUSSW) Equity & Inclusion Committee established the Emerging Scholars Program which invites three early career scholars from underrepresented backgrounds in the academy to share their knowledge about climate and environmental justice with the BU community. Join our emerging scholars Darien Alexander Williams, OreOluwa Badaki, and Shanondora Billiot and moderator Daniel Jacobson López at the BUSSW Emerging Scholars Colloquium on March 23rd – in-person at the GSU Terrace Lounge or virtually via Zoom.
