The field of social work helps ensure that people have equal access to resources, services and opportunities. Social workers encourage change by striving to end discrimination, oppression, poverty and other forms of social injustice. Working through established social groups and organizations, social workers strive to make them more responsive and helpful to the individuals they serve.
