Challenging Racism in the Workplace through the SWRB Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics.
This interactive webinar aims to support social workers to explore their duty to dismantle racism in their practice as set out in the CORU Social Workers Registration Board Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics (SWRB).
As a social work registrant, you must comply with the SWRB Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics. A breach of the Code could be held to be professional misconduct or poor professional performance and could result in a disciplinary sanction being imposed following a fitness to practise inquiry. ‘You must’ is used as an overriding principle or duty. The Code is very clear regarding discrimination by social workers, section 23 stating
23.2 You must not:
race, colour, nationality or ethnic or national origins, or
membership of the Traveller Community
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and reflect in small groups on how to build an anti-racist culture within their organisations.
