The School of Social Work at McGill University is delighted to be hosting the 2024 Annual CASWE-ACFTS Conference. Home to Indigenous Access McGill (since 2007) and Black Access McGill (since 2021), the School has been actively engaged in breaking structural and institutional barriers to access to social work education for members of Indigenous and Black communities and in increasing Black and Indigenous voices and representation in the curriculum. We have infused Equity, Diversity, Decolonization, Indigenization and Inclusion (EDDII) into our daily operations and have developed a simulation centre to ground our teaching to prepare our students for practice. It is for these reasons that the School is excited to invite scholars, students, practitioners, community partners and activists to gather this spring at McGill University located on the unceded territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabeg Nations to engage in authentic, reflexive discussions on selected conference theme: Social work’s role in transforming the present for a sustainable future. We recognize that the embeddedness of racism and colonialism in our everyday practices have always existed. These processes of exclusion and discrimination have broken through our collective professional consciousness necessitating us to reexamine and reignite that which has been ignored or erased.

This conference is taking place virtually and may include sessions at non-Congress locations. Please review the conference program if available or contact your association for details.
