Celebrate Social Workers

It is National Social Work Month! Hooray for us! Check out your local and national organizations for a variety of events being held to recognize the valuable work we do.

As I skimmed through some websites, the themes for present and past Social Work month celebrations do nicely describe our roles in society.

Social work matters
Social workers change futures
Social work inspires
Social work means purpose and possibility
Social workers stand up for others
Social work: Building on Strengths
Social work: Help start here
Social work helps people help themselves
Social work: building relationships, strengthening community and partnering for change

Happy Social Work Month!

It's also smartphone and Mac compatible, so you can network with workers on the go!
