March Events

March is Social Worker Appreciation Month

March is Social Worker Appreciation Month! The theme for 2024 is Empowering Social Workers! A social worker’s role is not only incredibly important for our society, but it is also a demanding and difficult career. Therefore, March is an important time to acknowledge the phenomenal work that social workers across the country do to help others who are struggling. During this month, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) has the goal to “raise awareness of the social work profession and highlight the need for the government, regulators and employers to work to improve pay for social workers as a way of investing in addressing challenging social issues” (2024).
