Introducing Social Work Your Social Work Career Workshop



I know social work! I know leadership! I know career success!

I also know that many high-performing Women of Color in social work leadership are struggling to elevate their careers. Sometimes unsure what is holding them back or what opportunities are available to them

I also know that there may be beliefs and behaviors that we have to unlearn in order to elevate in our leadership roles.

My calendar is open for SCHEDULING career acceleration workshops for women in social work leadership.

Workshop Title: Social Work Your Social Work Career

Workshop Description:

The opportunities to excel and make an impact in the social work profession are vast, however, both new and seasoned social workers often feel confusion and limitation about how to build a long-term successful social work career. Strategic Career Management is the lifelong process of investing resources into your career to maintain or increase your value in the workplace, undertake work that is personally satisfying, strive for work/life balance, and achieve financial security. The three pillars in my Strategic Career Management framework – clarity, credibility, and congruency – will be explored to determine how to can incorporate social work skills and training into the career advancement process. Social work skills are high-income skills yet this workshop will also explore potential barriers to career advancement that can be inhibited by traditional social work education, training, and belief systems.

Workshop Objectives:

Participants in this interactive presentation will:

1. Define social work career success on their own terms

2. Examine myths and misconceptions about the social work profession

3. Inventory their transferable social work skills and experiences

4. Explore various social work career fields and job titles

5. Develop a career acceleration plan
