Diverse Workforce Initiative
NASW-MN is Building Minnesota's Racially Diverse Social Work Community
REMOVING BARRIERS IS MISSION CRITICAL: we are building a strong, unified social work community that leads to a just and equitable Minnesota.
Systemic change needs to happen so education and licensure become fully accessible. NASW-MN is working to break barriers down and create accessibility for racially diverse social workers (and aspiring social workers)- people who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).

Are you a social worker who is Black, Indigenous, or a person of color? Do you have experience working with children and families?
By late spring, will you be ready to take on one or more BIPOC licensees or supervisees who are interning or working with Minnesota
children and families, and who are working toward licensure?
NASW-MN is now taking applications for contract licensure and internship supervisors as part of our Diverse Workforce Initiative.
Qualified applicants will have a Bachelor's or Master's-level social work degree, will be NASW-MN members while in the role, and will have a strong commitment to our mission. You can see all the criteria in the job description.
But most of all, qualified applicants are people who are excited to make a difference by providing opportunity, mentorship and support for other BIPOC social workers.
