As part of our Social Work Policy Consortium series, we are excited to invite you back for a free upcoming panel discussion: Where Do Social Workers Fit In?, on Friday, February 10th from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm PT. Social workers have the power to move change in our criminal justice systems, housing resources, healthcare policies, and much more at the local level. This workshop will feature social workers who are local elected officials who will offer insight and inspire ideas of what fellow social workers can do to actualize local level change in our communities.
Register today, and discover how you can ensure the social work voice is heard as you lead change in your community.
