Description

Webinar Summary: 
This National Social Work and World Social Work Day will be unlike any other. March is a time to come together and celebrate the impact social workers have on their clients, their communities, and the healthcare field.
Social Workers are Essential. 

Although we may not be hosting in-person celebrations this year, CASW and the Senate of Canada have joined forces to host two online events aimed to celebrate, and honour, the work of Social Workers this past year.  
 
Webinar Objectives: 
This panel, comprised of Senators from the Social Work Profession, will present the ideas, peoples and places that have inspired them in their careers – the giants in social work -- as well as the individuals in our communities that have molded and mentored each Senator’s professional paths within the profession. 
 
Second, the Senators will speak on their work, as well as the Parliament of Canada in addressing pervasive and systemic racism in Canada, and the role of social workers in social justice movements.
