Social workers help children succeed in school. They devise policies to address critical human needs. They provide support to members of the armed forces and their families.
They teach. They care.
The federal government has designated March as National Social Work Month, a time to honor the myriad life-changing contributions of those who pursue social work careers. The theme for 2020 is Social Workers: Generations Strong, highlighting the multigenerational contributions of social work practitioners.
“Social work is … a profession that allows people across many generations to make a profound, positive impact on the lives of millions of people each and every day,” explains the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), which is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2020. “You will find social workers from the silent generation and baby boomers to Generation Z who are doing the hard, often unsung work to make our nation and the world a better place.”1
Walden University works with a broad range of hardworking individuals as well, offering online bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs to help prepare them for impactful social work careers. And 2020 marks a special milestone for Walden, too: our 50th anniversary. Moving into its second half-century, Walden is committed to empowering the greater good, a founding principle that continues to guide our accredited university in its endeavors.
During this 50th anniversary year, Walden is shining a light on the innovators, change agents, and advocates who are driving change. Today, Walden salutes and celebrates social workers by sharing 50 of the ways they are changing the world.
