Social Work Day
Broadcasting UN Entity
Working towards eliminating social barriers and promoting the empowerment of persons with disabilities figures prominently on social workers' agendas worldwide.
The 2023 Social Work Day at the United Nations in New York aims to further our understanding of disability issues in human rights and developmental contexts. It seeks to highlight a full spectrum of this discourse, tackling theoretical aspects and down-to-earth issues encountered by practitioners and policymakers. The presentations on promoting enabling environments will identify ways in which socially discriminatory barriers can be reduced or eliminated.
