8:15-8:30 – Announcements and Welcome

8:30-9:00 –  NASW-NC Ethics Chair Update: Disagreement, Collaboration, and Ethics Service
                   Ravita T. Omabu Okafor, MSW, LCSW

Given today's polarizing social and political issues, many assume that all social workers espouse the same beliefs. What happens when we discover that we do not? In this segment, Ravita explores how social workers can disagree, pursue collaborative discussion, and serve ethically.

9:00-11:00 – Ethics and Cultural Competence
                    Karen Bullock PhD, LCSW, Chair of the NASW National Committee on Racial and Ethnic
                    Diversity, and Department Chair of NC State University Social Work Department

This presentation addresses numerous challenges that social workers confront as we aim to integrate cultural competence and the ethics of professional practice. It emphasizes the intersectionality of age, ability, gender identification and orientation, SES, ethnicity, race and religion to promote a social justice framework.

11:15-12:15 – Ethical Social Work and the LGBTQ Community: Providing Affirmative Support
                      Chase Harless, MSW

The LGBTQ community experiences unique discrimination and structural barriers when compared to the general population. Social workers inhabit a space where they can help support efforts to challenge these inequalities. This talk will provide an overview of the disparities facing the LGBTQ community and ways social workers can provide affirming support to the community from the social work perspective.
12:15-1:45 – Awards/Luncheon

1:45-2:45 – The Immigration Humanitarian Crisis & the NASW Code of Ethics
                   Ana Nuñez, MSW, JD

This presentation will discuss current humanitarian issues in immigration law and their intersection with the NASW Code of Ethics. The presentation will cover basic immigration principles, current trends in enforcement, active role of social workers, and the NASW Code of Ethics.

2:55-4:00 – The Ethics of Serving Refugee and Immigrant Survivors of Torture and Trauma
                  Josh Hinson, MSW, LCSW, LCAS

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that over 68 million people worldwide are displaced from their homes, more than ever before. Refugees and immigrants experience trauma in their home countries, as they flee seeking safety, and again as they struggle to integrate into new communities. This presentation will explore the ethical implications of social workers engagement with immigrants and refugees, and will suggest evidence-based strategies for helping access needed supports.
