Often times, people don’t realize social workers are influential professionals in our local communities and have led some of the most important social movements that have changed the fabric of our culture. Also many misconceptions persist about what social workers do and their role in many workplaces. Social workers are people who work tirelessly to help others and can be found in many key industries and professions, such as healthcare, business, human resources and government. Their experience working with culturally diverse audiences and shaping the public policies that help our most vulnerable populations gives them a diverse skill set that is transferrable to many different types of careers.
