Upcoming Activities of Interest to Branch Members

Expanding Field Awareness:
Eastern Branch Social Workers Talk About Their Employment Experiences

Eastern Branch social workers are invited to submit their name for a moderated panel discussion to be hosted at the Carleton University School of Social Work in September 2019. Chosen panelists will be provided with a series of questions prior to the date. As the MSW class is divided into two sections panel discussions will be scheduled on a Monday and a Thursday. Panelists are asked to submit their availability for one or both weekdays.

Purpose of the event: To expand MSW student awareness of the scope of practice available to social workers.
