The National Association of Social Workers Foundation has announced that GSSWSR Professor James (Jim) Martin will be inducted as one of 12 new Social Work Pioneers at a recognition ceremony to be held in Washington D.C. on October 29.
NASW Pioneers are social workers who have explored new territories and built outposts for human services on many frontiers. Some are well known; others less famous outside their immediate colleagues and the region where they live and work. But each has made an important contribution to the social work profession and to social policies through service, teaching, writing, research, program development, administration, or legislation.
All of these social workers are honored in the Pioneer Room at the national office of NASW in Washington, D.C. The pioneers have prepared the way for thousands of other social workers to make their contributions to the betterment of the human condition. They are all role models for future generations of social workers. A full description of Professor Martin’s pioneering contributions can be found on the NASW website.
