The 2022 Social Work Pioneer® Program and Luncheon was held in-person on October 15, 2022, in Washington, DC. Social work colleagues gathered and the 38 new Social Work Pioneers were honored.
Since its inception in 1955, NASW has been a fierce advocate for social workers, social justice and social welfare.
NASW held a daylong leadership forum in 2015 to culminate the association's 60th anniversary and to induct new NASW Social Work Pioneers®.
The purpose of the 2010 Social Work Congress was to examine the internal
challenges facing the social work profession, with a special focus on
transferring leadership from established leaders to emerging leaders.
In March 2005, NASW convened 400 social work leaders to develop action imperatives to forge a unified direction for the profession.
In 1998, NASW led a national celebration to honor 100 years of social work accomplishment and service in the United States.
