Lunch & Learn Webinar: Transracial Adoption



CoramBAAF is delivering a series of webinars in relation to diversity and adoption on behalf of RAA Leaders. These short webinars explore promising practice in adoption work in relation to issues of diversity. We will be hearing from practitioners and experts who will be able to inform and educate us about practicing in an anti-discriminatory way that embraces the diversity of children and adopters. The webinars are intended to be short and accessible so that practitioners can engage with them in working hours and take key learning from them. Details and how to register below.

The National Adoption Strategy (2021) set out an ambition to increase the number of people registering their interest in adoption, to target recruitment around the needs of those children waiting longest, improve the quality and responsiveness of adoption services and support the adoption workforce so they are supporting adoptive families in the best possible way and achieving better outcomes for those children. In developing the National Adoption Strategy, a number of working groups focussing on key aspects of the national strategy have been set up, including a group focussed on increasing the diversity and numbers of adopters. These webinars will explore key themes that are being developed as part of that work.

This session will be delivered by Yoni Ejo, founder of Diversity Adopt will host a webinar about transracial adoption and tools for adopters and practitioners to consider in these circumstances. Yoni’s presentation will cover approaches which give adopters the right tools to support a child in relation to the their identity. Within the webinar Yoni will talk about how to use play to support and explore identity.

For social workers, reflection on this session may contribute to your continuing professional development (CPD).
