Why We Have to Social Work This: #MacroSW #NPQ

This thoughtful editorial deepens the definition of social work,  and refutes the notion that our profession is comprised of only “short-term actions and well-intentioned goals, lacking in meaningful planning or impact.”

Congratulations to The MacroSW Collaboration (#MacroSW Partners) for the publication of the editorial “Why We Need to Social Work This“, in the Voices from the Field section of Nonprofit Quarterly.
