The Network for Social Work Management (NSWM) was formed in 1985, by a group of visionary leaders, based on six compelling imperatives:We are registered as a 501 (c) (3) in the State of California. Our official name is the Institute for Social Work Managers, but we do our business as “The Network for Social Work Management (NSWM)”. The network is currently hosted by Loyola University Chicago.
Our Vision: We envision a just and inclusive society co-created by diverse leaders using a racial equity framework to advance social good.
Our Mission is to strengthen, and mobilize diverse social impact leaders through education, leadership development, networking, and community-building.

We equip executives, directors, and managers with the tools to become effective, “people-centered” leaders, through our exceptional programs! We offer a variety of opportunities to help define and advance the unique skill-set of executive leaders and managers in the social work/human services sectors.
