About the Project
Understanding Social Work Leadership in Canada (USWLC) is a research study that captures and preserves the oral histories of social workers who have made notable contributions to social work practice and social justice.
The study includes analyzing video recordings of 56 historical oral histories created in 1983/84, together with 50 contemporary oral histories (yet to be recorded), in order to develop a model of leadership for social work in Canada.
The original project includes interviews with 56 social workers from across Canada who practiced from about 1920 to about 1983. These social workers were pioneers in social welfare and social policy in Canada, and established many of the services that we enjoy today. The contemporary oral histories are designed to reflect the leadership experiences of recently retired/retiring social workers with concerns for issues of diversity and inclusion, issues related to identity politics, and anti-oppressive practices.
