22nd Annual Spring Social Work Conference:

"Social Work: A Celebration of Diversity"

Presented by the USI Social Work Department and the NASW Indiana Chapter.  The annual spring conference is more than just an opportunity to earn CE hours – it is designed for alumni, practitioners, students, and others to meet or reconnect with former classmates and colleagues. 

This year our keynote will be a panel of speakers discussing:

Dismantling Myths: Why Your Practice Isn’t as Diverse as You Would Like

A panel of tri-state leaders examine the importance of diversity, equity and engagement, analyzing why social workers should engage critically with diversity in their practice. Discussion will focus on moving from “have to” regulations to policy alignment with social work ethics and our clients’ best interests through allyship, training and culture shift. Participants will leave with tools to utilize in their practice including how to have and start these conversations keeping ethics and safety at the forefront, redefining the definition of diversity and how it is approached, how to incorporate diversity throughout their practice and responding to common barriers to action.
