    My name is Benjamin Meoz, and I am doctoral student at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.


    I'm currently looking for people working in Social Work and Higher Education settings to participate in a survey about the impact of supervisor communication about social identities (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, ability status) when used in supervisory dyads (supervisor-employee pair) with social identity differences.


    To be eligible to participate you need to be at least 18 years of age, and have a supervisory dyad to reflect on that meets the following criteria:


    • the dyad is/was in a social work or higher education setting
    • youare/were the employee/supervisee
    • in this position you work/worked directly with clients/students
    • there is/was one or more social identity differences (race/ethnicity, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, faith, etc.), known or perceived, between you and this supervisor 


    Given COVID-19 and the continued deaths and discrimination of Black Americans, three randomly selected participants who enter the giveaway and have completed the survey will have their choice between a $150 gift card (e.g. caviar, grubhub, doordash, Amazon) or a donation of that amount made to any COVID-19 relief fund or organization fighting injustices (e.g., Minnesota Freedom FundBlack Lives Matter) of their choice.


    Survey Link:


    The survey will be open from June 1st to June 15th. Please share this information with anyone you think meets this eligibility criteria and would have an interest in participating.


    If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me at or (206) 221-8583.

    Thanks for sharing Benjamin! I'm passing this along to my colleagues: @Patrick Dunne @Marianne Varkiani @Duy Nguyen @Kendre Israel @Mary Kurfess @Kat Gibson-Ledl @Ryan Bradshaw @Mumbi Mwaura

    To clarify-survey respondents must be social work students or practitioners, not faculty?​​​​​​​​​​​
