Social location refers to identity constructs such as gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, class, religion, sexual orientation, geographic locations, and age (Hulko, 2009). Social location influences individual experiences and world views It also coveys the power and privilege one experiences related to identity. According to Hulko, power is situational. So while we may feel powerful or powerless in one situation, we may enjoy a great deal of power or experience less power in another. Social workers should understand their own power and privilege in relation to their clients, the communities served, and within the organizational and agency context. We must be able to navigate systems in order to best serve clients and communities, challenge injustices, and be able to survive in environments that are hostile to our own social location and/or to our clients’ social location.
