Embedding anti-racist approaches: Partnership Conference 2022

Embedding anti-racist approaches: Partnership Conference 2022

Delivered online via Microsoft Teams


09:00 - 16:00 Thursday, 24 March 2022


Social justice, human rights and equality have always been at the heart of effective social care. This year’s children & families Partnership Conference will bring together voices of experience, practice leadership and national policy to consider how both practice and service development can be designed and delivered more equitably. 

The application of anti-racist approaches to practice and when dealing with barriers to progression for Black, Asian and minoritised colleagues have highlighted the importance of rights-based approaches in the provision of equitable support and services.  

Many organisations are now working towards, and demonstrating the value of a diverse workforce that enables people and organisations to triangulate a range of perspectives, experiences and knowledge to deliver child and family-centred social care. 

We will share learning from Research in Practice’s partner network, academic research and learning from an upcoming Evidence Review on promoting anti-racism in children’s social care.  


As a result of attending this conference, participants will be able to:  

  • Understand the systemic nature of racism and its effects on both colleagues and people with lived experience. 
  • Recognise the difference between passive approaches and more active anti-racist approaches. 
  • Demonstrate the value of a diverse workforce.
