Presidential Plenary
The impact of COVID-19 on SSWR members scholarly careers has been exacerbated by the racial injustice and political unrest seen every day in the U.S. Altogether, these troubled times have affected our teaching, research, publications, and service. And we know the impact is immediate and long-term. In response to the needs of SSWR members, this year's conference will feature a Presidential Conversation in lieu of a Presidential Plenary. The Conversation brings together a panel of five senior faculty from across the country to engage in a conversation with early career social work scholars (e.g., PhD students, post-docs, assistant professors) and mid-career scholars (e.g., associate professors, research scientists) on navigating career during this upheaval in our careers, now and into the future. The Conversation will begin with some brief remarks by panelists to provide perspectives and suggestions on teaching, research, service, and personal mental health. But it is intended primarily as a conversation among panelists and participants. Participants are encouraged to bring their questions to this important session.
