|Description:||When people can access the services and resources they need to more fully participate in society, it is often because of the meaningful efforts of social workers. Ryerson graduates promote social justice and equity by helping individuals to access multiple social services in order to meet their fundamental needs and accomplish their goals. Practitioners have a deep understanding of how gender, race, ethnic-cultural origin, class, sexual diversity, age, and physical and mental capacities shape the experiences of those who require social services. As skilled advocates and collaborators, social workers advance the causes of human dignity, equality and social care.
