Traditionally, social work is a female dominated career. Although there are some amazing male social workers, there aren’t nearly enough. For Social Work to thrive, a balanced, diverse mix of people is vital to the field. I was curious why some men brave the waters of social work and others pass it by so I asked 3 male colleagues of mine about their jump into the social services field. Each of them gave me passionate and considerate answers.
See if you see some similarities – if you do maybe social work is for you.
