Rashaad Vahed, Treasurer-Secretary (2016-2018)
ashaad Vahed has been a practicing social worker for the past 14 years and has come to appreciate the critical work that social workers do on behalf of families and communities.
Throughout the time that he has been a member of OASW, Rashaad has observed the vital and growing role that the Association has played in advancing the voice of social workers on behalf of the people we serve.
During his participation as Board Director, OASW has pursued a balanced plan in
pursuing our end goals (professional advocacy, social advocacy, and membership
services) with our means goals (finances, structure and communication).
To the role of Treasurer-Secretary, Rashaad will draw heavily from his current experience as Director of Clinical Services and Innovative Practice (Hincks-Dellcrest Centre) and a strong history of clinical practice, academic participation, community development, and past work with the Ontario public service.
Rashaad feels very fortunate to have worked in a variety of domains that allows him to have a broader understanding of the experiences of social workers and the implications of ongoing changes on the work that we do.
