Join social workers across BC to share your experience practising social work during the COVID-19 emergency.
During this online meeting, we will learn from each other's experience and find out what works in your community. Let's share what advocacy actions we each are involved with; what's working well with local initiatives and BC government programs; what needs to be tweaked, and what still needs to be addressed?
BCASW will carry your ideas forward in our advocacy work with the BC government to strengthen our collective response to the pandemic.
Register now and join the discussion at 7pm-830pm, Thursday, May 7th.
