Purpose:

The need to cultivate emerging new leaders and support strong exemplary mid-career trendsetters for the social work profession has never been greater. In the next few years, the social work and human services communities will experience a dramatic transition of leadership as a result of the retirement of 50% of human services executives.

NASW-NYC is committed to assuring that the future of the social work profession remains strong and promising, and calls upon the greater social work community to join this effort. Through its Annual Emerging & Exemplary Social Work Leaders Award*, NASW-NYC seeks to identify and recognize both early and mid-career social workers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, expertise and dedication to the profession and to the improvement of social and human conditions in the New York City area.

With broader recognition and support, emerging and mid-career social work leaders who have made substantive contributions or held significant positions will have increased opportunities to advance to the highest executive or management positions in the human services. Their contributions also may enhance practice knowledge and/or the capacity of the profession and human services to obtain resources and influence.

Selection Criteria for Emerging Leaders Recognition:

  • MSW degree from an accredited graduate school of social work
  • Minimum of three (3) years and maximum of ten (10) years post-masters experience. (Consideration will be given to full- or part-time employment and/or volunteer work)
