It’s all coming together. We have a week-long line-up of culturally informed events curated just for you. The conference week will start with an opportunity to get to know us and you. On Monday evening, we will host a fun and interactive online networking night. On Tuesday afternoon, take your lunch to your desk and join us for a quick lunch and learn event. Be sure to finish your work on Tuesday, because come Wednesday we want you to clear your desk and prepare for your journey into culture. We will begin with a morning webinar followed by an evening in-person meet and greet. After two years, we get to fellowship in person! Enjoy conversations with other professionals and businesses to help support the work you do and here’s another bonus… you get to come outside! Be sure to party responsibly and get a full night’s sleep because, on Thursday, we will join in a full day of engaging learning experiences. Finally, to help celebrate the reason why we are doing this, we will have a surprise for conference attendees on Friday to help celebrate the newly federally recognized holiday, Juneteenth!
You absolutely cannot miss the time for all of us to be together! Looking forward to celebrating with you!
In January 2022, with less than a month to plan, the NASW-MD presented The Black Health and Wellness Symposium to celebrate Black History Month. What I took away from this amazingly beautiful experience is that when people say you can’t, or shouldn’t, or slow down, think deeply about what you want. Sometimes the advice is solely intended for your good. Other times, the advice is based on what the other person feels they shouldn’t or wouldn’t do. Listen to your voice. Find those who believe in you and keep going.
We experienced such great success at our symposium that the audience asked us to bring more. Stay tuned because we are back at it again! Onward!Learn More
