Save the Date: GADE Virtual Awards Ceremony

On behalf of the GADE Board of Directors, we invite you to the GADE Virtual Award Ceremony on February 2, 2022, at 7:00pm ET / 6:00pm CT. Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 infections we were unable to host the GADE Reception at the SSWR Conference. In order to properly recognize our community, we will be hosting a virtual event to honor the 2022 GADE Awardees and Cross-Institutional Student Collaboration Winner and recognize the Anti-Racist Pedagogy doctoral student team.

Thank you for joining us at SSWR!

Thank you to those that joined us at the Society for Social Work & Research (SSWR) conference last week in Washington, DC or virtually! For those of you who attended the conference, we hope it offered an opportunity to network, learn, and reconnect.

Unfortunately, this year we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the GADE Reception due to the recent surge in COVID-19 infections. We are following up to recognize the 2022 GADE Awardees with an awardee recognition video that would have traditionally been honored during this reception.

Update: GADE Reception at SSWR

We are writing to inform you that the GADE Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our GADE Reception at the 2022 SSWR Conference. Due to the unprecedented rise in recent coronavirus infections, we feel it is prudent to honor our awardees at an online live awards ceremony to be held in the very near future (date TBA). In addition to this virtual event, we will plan to recognize this year’s awardees again at the 2023 SSWR Annual Conference. The Board did not come to this decision lightly. After careful deliberation, we concluded that the risks outweighed the benefits and made the difficult decision to shift course.

Thank you for joining us at CSWE-APM!

Thank you to those that joined us at the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Annual Program Meeting (APM) last week in Orlando, Florida!
