Anyway, I began digging around and found various pages devoted to Social Work Month. I particularly enjoyed this one list, created by the North Carolina Chapter of the NASW, titled "20 Ways to Promote Social Work Month."
Check out these suggestions:
1. Give the NASW Code of Ethics or Standards of Practice to an employer.I'm working on #2. I will be doing #15 later this week or next for a work-related project. I've already done #17. I occasionally do #18. I likely won't do #1, #10, #11, or #13.
2. Lead a coalition through work, school, or in the community.
3. Become a mentor for a social work student.
4. Submit a newspaper op - ed highlighting a social work topic.
5. Update a Wikipedia entry on a social work topic.
6. Coordinate a community assistance project.
7. Inform a local news outlet about a social work event or issue.
8. Ask a coalition to circulate a social work publication to its members.
9. Register your social work private practice in an online directory, such as Help Starts Here .
10. Attend a NASW - NC Local Program Unit (LPU) meeting.
11. Join a NASW - NC Practice Area Network (PAN) listserv.
12. Lend books written by social workers to friends and family.
13. Post a comment or story to Social Workers Speak.
14. Start a social work blog.
15. Watch a TED Talk by a social work speaker.
16. Disseminate information about a social work institute or study.
17. Post info about Social Work Month to your profile on social media.
18. Share social work stories with your online network.
19. Host a film screening on a social work topic or issue.
20. Present about social work at a local school’s career day.
