Abstract

Author(s): Koray KORKMAZ Cengiz ZBESLER

Social work is a profession that contributes to the development, change, emancipation, empowerment, and well-being of individuals, families, groups and societies. Diversity, a result of human nature, has become a new phenomenon in the globalizing and changing world. Social workers need to be able to understand how the distress faced by different groups of people and social inequality and discrimination affect people's lives. Gender, which is established socially by separating from the biological differences between the sexes, determines the position and roles of men and women within society. Social workers are also expected to understand the reflections of gender inequality in their professional lives and to implement gender sensitive practices. If social workers perform their work with a high understanding of gender and respect for diversity, quality and success will increase from a professional standpoint. Candidates of social workers who will work with disadvantaged sections of society in their professional careers are expected to acquire a variety of professional knowledge, skills and values in their education processes. The extent to which the emphasis is on respect for diversity and gender in the education process is crucial for realizing sensitive practices. Social work departments and educators have a duty to ensure that students receive education in accordance with a well-designed program covering diversity and gender issues. In this regard, the issue of gender and respect for diversity will be discussed within the framework of social work profession and education
