Abstract: The world is becoming increasingly diverse and dramatic inequalities are on the rise in communities near and far. This reality requires social workers to be mindful of what God is doing to empower communities who are in flux, what we as social workers are doing to cooperate in the empowerment process and Kingdom-building work, and how we as social workers alter our outreach strategies. The keynote will explore empowering diverse communities through an empowerment map, explore pathways that bring about empowerment, and hear stories from communities near and far who see empowerment as a necessary ingredient to change.
