You’re There for a Reason: Keeping Your "Social Workiness"

Thursday, May 18, 2023
6:00-7:30 pm ET

Social workers often find themselves one of a few or one of one social workers in their agency or milieu. It is easy to become absorbed into the perspectives of other professions when you are outnumbered. This NASW Student Series webinar will focus on how important it is for new (and seasoned) social workers not to lose their mission and values – their “social workiness.” You were hired into your position for a reason, whether your boss knows that reason or not. We will discuss how you can advocate for your clients, yourself, and your profession.

Presenter: Lynn Stanley, LICSW. Executive Director NASW NH & NASW VT

Dual Degrees in Social Work 

Thursday, June 15, 2023
6:00-7:30 pm ET

It is not uncommon for social workers to consider dual degree programs during undergrad, graduate, or doctoral programs. Besides social work, many individuals also pursue degrees in law, business, public policy, public health, urban planning, information sciences, and more. What can be some of the benefits of combining degrees and specialties? Social work students from across the country are invited to NASW's June 2023 Student Series webinar, where they will hear directly from a panel of dual-degreed individuals about their experiences and career trajectories. Bring your questions!
