McGuinn Hall Auditorium (McGuinn 121)
Open to the entire BC Community
As part of the BCSSW Diversity + Justice Series events, BC Social Work will host a presentation with Dr. Michael Omi. Michael is a sociologist and associate professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of California at Berkeley. He is also Associate Director of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society that brings together scholars, policy makers, and stakeholders to eliminate barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society.
Michael is known for his collaboration with Howard Winant on the ground-breaking and classic book, Racial Formation in the United States, first published in 1986. Michael will be speaking about the third edition of his book which has been substantially revised and recently released this year. The book is transformative with a cogent discussion and elaboration on the social construction and politics of race. A major part of the racial formation theory is that the complex meanings of race are constantly shaped and reshaped by political struggles at the micro and macro levels. The book helped change the scholarship about race in a number of fields including sociology, education, health, and the behavioral sciences. Michael’s will discuss what’s “new” in the new edition, consider contemporary events through the lens of racial formation theory, and reflect on future trends in racial theory.
Co-Sponsors: Boston College School of Social Work, African and African Diaspora Studies Program, Asian and Asian American Studies, Asian Pacific Islander Employees, Lynch School of Education, Department of Sociology and the BCSSW Center for Social Innovations as part of the City Awake Boston.

With the help of the ForbesWoman community, Forbes has searched the Web for the most dynamic, inspiring, and helpful websites for women. Included in this list is the Boston College Alfred P. Sloan Work and Family Research Network website.
The Sloan Work and Family Research Network is widely recognized as the premier online destination for current, credible, and comprehensive research and information on work and family issues. The site serves a global community of academics, workplace practitioners, and state public policy makers and features multidisciplinary, credible teaching resources, evidence-based information on cutting-edge workforce issues, talent management, and the impact of work and family issues on business outcomes and unbiased policy data about work and family legislation. Judi Casey, MSW, is currently the Principal Investigator and Director of the Network and GSSW Associate Professor, Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes, Ph.D. is the founder of the Network.
"The Sloan Network is thrilled to be included as a top website for women. We hope that the site will be useful to anyone attempting to manage their work and family lives which in my opinion, includes just about everyone -- students graduating from college or going on to a graduate degree, families caring for children and elders or older workers phasing out of the workplace."
