BIPOC Student Leadership and Practitioner Program

The purpose of the NASW-WI BIPOC Student & Practitioner Program is to support BIPOC social work students and practitioners in participation in leadership and career development opportunities inside and outside of NASW. This fund will help diversify NASW-WI’s membership and the social work profession in Wisconsin.

The BIPOC Student and Practitioner Series: These are quarterly workshops with topics of interest to BIPOC individuals. You can learn more about these workshops by staying in touch with us on social media or visiting our events page.

The BIPOC Student Leadership Program: The purpose is to provide an opportunity for BIPOC social work students to become members of NASW-WI, learn leadership skills, have a mentor, and begin taking leadership roles within NASW-WI. To increase diversity in NASW-WI’s membership, up to ten BIPOC students will have their NASW membership paid for one year. NASW-WI is the state chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. You can learn more about the program by reviewing the application.
