LSWO Latinx Social Work Conference- Portland
May 18-20, 2023

The Latino Social Workers Organization (LSWO) invites all social work professionals, allied health professionals, and social work faculty to submit proposals for this 2023 Conference at Portland State University School of Social Work.  

Exhibitor space and LSWO La Familia Sponsorships are available. Please complete the online form below. 

For over 20 years, the LSWO has focused on bringing quality continuing education to social workers, students, and allied health professionals.  We have had conferences, in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, and Seattle.  We are a network of social work faculty and professional social workers who believe in the recruitment and retention of Latinx students in higher education. 

Portland State University is hosting this conference.  We appreciate their support and guidance in the planning of this conference.  The agenda for May 18-19, 2023 will include Keynotes, Panels, and Workshops.  At our recent conference in Seattle, all attendees appreciated the opportunity to focus on the future of Latinx Social Work Practice, with an opportunity to listen to social workers share their personal and professional challenges in. Faculty, professionals, and students participated in focus groups. So, on May 20, 2023, we will continue to integrate this special day of the conference.
