Unapologetically South Asian Special Interest Group | NASW-NYS Special Interest Groups
Unapologetically South Asian is a new initiative by fierce South Asian women who are also social workers.
The purpose of this initiative is to educate social workers about our diverse culture(s). Our goal is to change the way social workers engage with our community by putting our culture first in practice. We will use our experiences to teach you about the barriers our community faces on a regular basis. We are immigrants who are actively rejecting the pressure of assimilation and living unapologetically South Asian!
Special Interest Groups (SIG) are member-led networks of social workers across New York State and beyond, connecting like-minded social workers on topics, practice areas, client populations, and other common interests for the purpose of sharing resources, and further developing support systems through the New York State Chapter.
Members of the New York State Chapter may facilitate a Special Interest Group. ALL social workers benefit from the activities of these groups, and are welcome to join us at any upcoming meeting.
