Chapter Chats initially emerged out of a need to socially connect social workers while practicing physical distancing. They have grown into an accessible and easy way for social workers to share resources, network, and engage with one another across the State and Nation. These are conversations hosted by social workers, for social workers. Open to all who would like to attend, and any NASW member is invited to host a topic or conversation!

Calling All Experienced Social Workers: These social work students need your feedback!

December 7 at 4:00pm EST
December 8 at 5:00pm EST

In this three part series, BSW students from Skidmore College are actively seeking feedback on their policy projects through paper presentations as they build into a call to action with legislators across the United States. These students have chosen topics for their policy project they are passionate about, but need insight from experienced social workers to better advocate for members of the community that their project impact. Join us for whole or part, one or three of these sessions. Topics will range from homelessness, access to equitable education, the intersection of healthcare and mental health, and other issues of racial and social justice. Your valuable insight, encouragement, and expertise is so important to share with the next generation of social workers. We hope to see you with us on December 2, 7, or 8!
