The diversity of the racial and ethnic makeup of the United States provides both a rich cultural asset and a complex set of needs. This diversity and the various needs of different groups has important implications for social work practice and research. This panel of grantees and alumni scholars of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) New Connections program will discuss current social, racial and economic issues that Americans face, the needs presenter from these issues and how the field of social work provides services in light of them. The panelists will also discuss how the New Connections program has impacted their career and research perspective.
