Event Overlay

Join the Society for Social Work (SSWR) on April 19 for a lecture with Tanya Sharpe for her lecture Beyond a Seat at ‘The Table.’

Sharpe is the recipient of the Society for Social Work and Research and the Brown School, Washington University in St. Louis, 2023 Aaron Rosen Lecture Award.

Sharpe’s body of scholarly research reflects the tradition of the Aaron Rosen Lecture to promote racial equity and social justice in social work education; safety, identities and wellness of BIPOC women and LGBTQ people; domestic violence in minoritized communities; and the use of critical and feminist theories and methodologies in social work.

An associate professor at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, Sharpe is a community-engaged researcher who is passionately committed to the development of culturally responsive approaches and sustainable opportunities allowing Black communities to thrive in the aftermath of experiencing devastating traumatic injury. Her research examines sociocultural factors that influence the coping strategies of Black family members and friends of homicide victims.
