Today, March 17, is World Social Work Day! The Australian Association of Social Workers (2015) provides the following information about World Social Work Day:
World Social Work Day 2015 (WSWD) is on March 17. The theme ‘Promoting the Dignity and Worth of Peoples’ relates to the sorld Social Work Day 2015econd pillar of the Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development. The theme focuses on the joint work of The International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW), The International Association of Schools of Social Work and The International Council on Social Welfare. These three organisations are committed to working together to influence international, regional and local policies, government actions and to highlight the value and contributions that social workers make everyday throughout the world.
For me, World Social Work Day is a day to pause and celebrate a very meaningful profession – one that I have garnered much value from.
