2014 Diversity + Alumni Conference 

Students, alumni, faculty, and staff are invited to attend a morning conference to explore the intersections of diversity and social work practice and to honor this year's recipients of the Distinguished Alumni Awards.

In academic year 2013-2014, the GSSW community is focusing on Justice, Diversity, and Aging. In keeping with that focus, this conference will explore the challenges that social workers face in meeting the needs of older immigrants and refugees and older LGBT men and women.

The conference will be held on Friday, January 10, 2014 from 8:00 am - 12:15 pm in the Murray Room of the Yawkey Center on the main campus. 3 CEUs offered.

There is no fee for attending but we do ask that everyone
