Dr Rosaleen Ow and Associate Professor Ngiam Tee Liang, Department of Social Work, were among the ten social work pioneers who had been honoured for their contributions at the 10th annual Social Workers’ Day (SWD). Over the last 30 years, their contributions had laid the groundwork for improving lives in Singapore.

At the event, Dr Ow said, “Society is increasingly having sub-groups popping up, people we didn’t notice before. We can no longer put our heads in the sand and say that we don’t want to work with people who are different.”

This year’s SWD was graced by┬áMinister for Social and Family Development, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin and was attended by more than 500 social service practitioners.
