The Helping Pioneers
Social work is a career that is rewarding yet challenging. Social workers contribute to the society by helping people overcome difficulties and improve their lives. Social work pioneers are social workers who have explored new territories and built outposts for human services on many frontiers around the globe. Some of these pioneers are well known while others are less famous outside the field of social work and the region where they live and work. However, each one of them has made an important contribution to the social work profession and to social policies through service, teaching, writing, research, program development, administration, or legislation. This exhibit highlights the actions/contributions of prominent (or influential) individual social workers from various countries spanning across six continents.
