Social Work Workforce Coalition

The Social Work Workforce Coalition includes a range of U.S. and Canadian social work organizations that represent diverse perspectives. This coalition has provided input on emerging trends in social work practice, helped structure community conversations, and contributed questions to the Social Work Census. The census will launch in March 2024 with coalition support.
