"Developing, Retaining, & Sustaining a Vibrant Workforce"
We are thrilled to share the resounding success of our 1st Annual Social Services Workforce Symposium, held from September 13-15, 2023. The event exceeded our expectations, drawing a diverse and passionate crowd from across the United States. Professionals from various fields, including social work, psychology, counseling, education, law enforcement, workforce development, and behavioral health providers, converged to join our mission of fostering collaboration, sharing ideas, and devising innovative solutions to the challenges confronting the social services workforce.
The symposium centered around the theme, "Developing, Retaining, & Sustaining a Vibrant Workforce," reflecting our commitment to creating a healthy and thriving work environment for all. Attendees delved into current research findings, critical news, and leading practices, igniting a renewed dedication to transforming our practices, partnerships, and systems.
Our goal was to catalyze collaboration, action, and a shared commitment to building a resilient and sustainable workforce. The symposium not only provided exceptional professional development opportunities but also facilitated meaningful networking. We firmly believe that it takes collective effort at every level to create a healthy, sustainable workforce, ultimately leading to strengthened services that eliminate inequities of access and provide opportunities to vulnerable populations.
We extend an invitation for you to experience the refreshing and affirming atmosphere of engaging with experts who shared their invaluable expertise during the event. The symposium featured amazing keynote speakers and presenters across all three days, complemented by entertainment, music, and a vibrant social networking event.
As we bask in the success of this year's symposium, we eagerly anticipate the 2024 Social Services Workforce Symposium. Mark your calendars and join us in continuing this essential conversation. Together, let's strive for a workforce that is not only developed, retained, and sustained but also vibrant and ready to address the evolving challenges in the field of social services.
Thank you for being a part of this transformative experience.
