The purpose of the seminar was to spread the word! March is International Social Work Month. Sponsored by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), this annual celebration recognizes the contributions of the nation’s more than 600,000 social workers.This year’s GCWUS- Department of Sociologytheme, “WITH HUMANITY FOR HUMNAITY-“Together we can Change” highlights the efforts of the sociologist &social work profession to bring about positive change in society and for individuals — from advocating for social justice to making a direct impact on the daily lives of millions of Pakistanis. Department of Sociology took a small step in Punjab to articulate others about sociology and social work’s history and scope. Although social workers impact the lives of millions, many people know little of our profession’s history or its scope of responsibilities. We can help change that!!!
