The Student Series: Social Workers in Practice provides opportunity for students to hear from professional social workers about their work and build connections within the profession. There are 8 events planned for 2019, between March and November.

Our August speaker will be Liam McGovern.

Liam works as a policy officer for the NSW Office of the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP), an independent statutory office focusing on the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. He undertakes research and drafts submissions that contribute to the policy process and inform decision makers. Prior to this, Liam worked with the NSW Services for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS) in their School Liaison Team. Since 2017, Liam has served on the executive of the Social Work in Disability Practice Group (SWID), initially as the Student Representative and now Deputy Convener.

The webinar will run from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. Those attending in person are invited to join us for light refreshments beforehand from 6pm to 6:30pm, and to mingle with other social work students afterwards, from 7:30pm to 8pm.
