Call for proposals issued for next Saint Leo University Social Work Conference

The organizers of the Saint Leo University Social Work Conference have announced they are calling for proposals for sessions to be presented during the next conference. The daylong event will take place virtually on Friday, October 8, and so presentations will need to work within a virtual format. The conference theme this year is: “Social Workers Are Essential.” This is the same theme established by the National Association of Social Workers ( to highlight March (our current month) as Social Work Month 2021.

Organizers of the conference assert that events in our nation related to the global pandemic, racial injustice, civil unrest, increased isolation, and social stressors all highlight the need for the unique perspective and skillsets that social workers bring to both community work and clinical practice. With that in mind, organizers will be seeking proposals that highlight innovation and lessons learned in practice, policy, and research during this historically challenging period.

Those attending the conference will be practicing social workers as well as academics. The 2021 gathering will be the seventh annual Saint Leo University Social Work Conference. 

Those interested in making a presentation or hosting a workshop should submit a proposal by Thursday, April 15.
