At each annual SSWR conference, there is an organized lunch for all doctoral students. This is a great place to network with your colleagues across topics and universities. This luncheon also features a keynote speaker or panel each year! These are always focused on issues relevant to the doctoral student experience. Here are the past years' presentations, in case you missed it.

2015: Susan P. Kemp. "Doctoral Students and the Future of Social Work Research"

2016: Laina Bay-Cheng. "Research for Good: Enabling PhD Students to Realize the Transformative Potential of Research"
