The National Association of
Social Workers Foundation is pleased to present the NASW Social
Work Pioneers to our members and others on the Web.
NASW Pioneers are social workers who have explored
new territories and built outposts for human services on many frontiers.
Some are well known; others less famous outside their immediate colleagues
and the region where they live and work. But each has made an important
contribution to the social work profession and to social policies
through service, teaching, writing, research, program development,
administration, or legislation.
All of these social workers are honored in the NASW Pioneer Room
in our national office in Washington, DC. The pioneers have prepared
the way for thousands of other social workers to make their contributions
to the betterment of the human condition. They are all role models
for future generations of social workers.
The NASW Foundation has made every effort to provide accurate Pioneer biographies. If you would like to provide missing information, or correct inaccurate information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
