GADE celebrates March as Social Work Month -- a time to recognize the great profession and the incredible community of social work educators, students, scholars, educators, and practitioners.
On March 1, Social Work Leadership Roundtable (SWLR) is asking social work students, faculty, practitioners, and regulators to submit their thoughts, images, quotes, testimonies, videos, and/or poems in response to the theme of this year’s SW Month:
“Can you show or tell us why The Time is Right for Social Work?”
How can you participate in this event?
Post your responses to the question: "Can you show or tell us why The Time is Right for Social Work?" to the forums hosted by CSWE or NASW. CSWE has Spark which is free and not tied to membership, NASW has myNASW for members.
The window for individuals to submit something will be March 1-14. After that, CSWE’s Communications team will coordinate with all groups to collect the content and produce a multimedia presentation. The presentation could be a slideshow of selected (or all) images and short videos with a narrated script comprised of written content like quotes, poems, testimonies.
The presentation will be part of a Web meeting held from 2-3:30 pm, Eastern, on March 25, 2022. A group of 4-5 panelists chosen by the Planning Committee will reflect and react to the presentation and the SW Month theme. We ask that you also encourage your members to participate in this meeting. The panelists are being selected to reflect many aspects of social work and, to date, include:
- Glenn Speer, volunteer speaker for NAMI-NYC
- Dr. Suk-hee Kim, Associate Professor, Northern Kentucky University; recent recipient of the CSWE Distinguished Recent Contributions to Social Work Education Award
- Dr. Yarneccia Dyson, Assistant Professor, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro; recent recipient of the CSWE Early Career Faculty Service and Leadership in Social Work Education Award
