Mentor Recognition Fund

As we prepare to teach aspiring social workers, our minds turn to those who taught us as aspiring professionals, guided our career paths, and nurtured our professional development. 

There are many ways to make women more influential in social work education; one way is by honoring our mentors. We invite you to honor your mentor through the Women’s Council Mentor Recognition Fund. This mentoring project not only recognizes the influence of mentors in the lives of our members, but also helps support the ongoing work of the Women’s Council.

2019 Mentor Recognition

In October 2019, the Feminist Networking Breakfast (formerly the Women's Council Breakfast) at CSWE's Annual Program Meeting (APM) in Denver, Colorado recognized and celebrated feminist mentors for their contributions to the increased visibility of women in social work education. Honorees received a certificate from their proteges and were listed in the 2019 Feminist Networking Breakfast program.
