What is S.W.A.G
The S.W.A.G (Social Worker Appreciation of Greatness) Awards Ceremony was founded by Sharise Nance, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in March 2019. S.W.A.G was created to recognize the “heart work” of local social workers that is oftentimes unappreciated and unrecognized.
S.W.A.G has a customized-appointed committee which consists of social workers, helping professionals and community leaders.
The goal of the annual S.W.A.G awards ceremony is to recognize social workers in the Greater Pittsburgh Area who exemplify servant leadership through their commitment to promoting advocacy, social justice, generational healing and building stronger communities.
These social workers are nominated by their peers and selected by a committee.
Despite postponement to March 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions, the inaugural S.W.A.G awards ceremony was a success. Awardees felt appreciated, social workers were celebrated, guests had catered meals by Taylor Made Catering delivered from 412 Food Rescue Volunteers and awardees, sponsors, and guests had the opportunity to network on an interactive virtual platform to celebrate social work
