The smarter way to stay on top of the social work industry.
In 2015, NASW partnered with SmartBrief to launch Social Work SmartBrief, a daily e-mail newsletter specifically designed to provide professional social workers with the day’s top stories from the field, career insights, as well as opportunities for professional development.
A quick, two-minute read, Social Work SmartBrief is a one-stop shop for the news you need to save time and stay informed. You may subscribe for free to this valuable service.

Diversity Survey Results Overview
We want to thank those members who took time to share their important input with the Florida Chapter. The NASW Member Diversity Survey 2017 consisted of a 20 Likert-style items and seven open-ended items. Six percent (N=297) of the NASW Florida members responded to some or all the items on the survey. The table included below sums the responses to the first 20 items of the survey. Many members were not aware of what NASW Florida is doing in response to advocacy for many groups of citizens living in Florida. Most members are not aware of the Diversity Plan for local units or the Florida Chapter. A significant number is not aware of significant efforts by the Florida Chapter to address diversity dialogue between divided communities. There is also a perception that local units do not have a balanced representation of diverse groups of social workers.
NASW-FL has a monthly electronic newsletter and a printed bulletin sent to all current FL Chapter members..
The electronic newsletter will keep you informed of current events and issues, upcoming local Unit and continuing education events, along with ways to become more involved. We hope you enjoy receiving these monthly updates directly to your e-mail inbox,
The printed Bulletin will continue to include important highlights about NASW and the social work profession with a little more depth.

If you have something to share, please send the information to Christine Call at firstname.lastname@example.org.
