ACSW President’s message
Diversity is an ever present part of our world. How do we best embrace and celebrate our differences? Life is not static. We are constantly evolving and changing. In our Code of Ethics we are called upon to participate in the development of new professional knowledge. As a profession we strive to create and implement the best possible policies and services for the diverse communities we serve.
