FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT
Happy Social Work Month!
We’ve come a long way since Social Work instruction began 125 years ago. I am so proud of us! We are a unique bunch of go-getters and fierce advocates. We roll up our sleeves and get things done. This year, our theme is ‘Social Work Breaks Barriers.’ There is a long list of barriers we have broken over the history of our profession, of which we should be very proud. One aspect that I believe could use some improvement is learning to take credit for our accomplishments, collectively and individually. More than any other profession, we tend to experience discomfort around self-promotion. Sometimes we even have a hard time explaining what we do. That is, I believe because our impact is so much more than the sum of our activities. We are agents of change.
