National Social Work Month conversation series

Please join us in March as we kick off a month of exciting events for National Social Work Month!

The scope of our profession is broad, and our members and their communities across the province are incredibly diverse, but this year’s theme — Seven Points of Unity; Many Possibilities — identifies common values that bring us together and lay a foundation for safer social work practice.

Our executive director Alec Stratford, has planned a month-long series of member consultations across the province. These important discussions will focus on the college’s upcoming strategic plan and our new code of ethics (based on the new code created by the Canadian Association of Social Workers).

The objectives of these consultations are:

  • to gain valuable insights from social workers about the future direction of the profession and NSCSW;
  • to gather feedback on the proposed strategic plan; and
  • to facilitate deeper discussion on the new Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.

Alec will begin the month with a virtual session, then visit communities in each region of Nova Scotia for in-person consultations. These gatherings will offer a prime opportunity for social workers to engage in shaping the future direction of both the profession and the NSCSW.

Mark your calendars and join us for an insightful month dedicated to the many possibilities social workers have for building a more compassionate world, together. We look forward to seeing you there!
