The Macro-SIL Program at Boston College School of Social Work is sponsoring a Leadership Speakers Luncheon Series during the 2014-2015 academic year. The program is designed to introduce Macro-SIL students and other BC Social Work students interested in leadership skills to the practical experiences of leaders in social-justice-oriented careers. Leaders are invited to campus to bring their expertise in administration, policy, change management/transformation, and social innovation to the discussions. They are interviewed about their greatest leadership challenge, their most important leadership lesson, and advice for students. A facilitated Q&A session with students will follow each interview.
Talia Rivera's experience working with youth began in 1998. She is among the leading thinkers on youth violence, gang interventions, network organizing, and street work in the City of Boston. More about Macro-SIL Leadership Speakers Luncheon with Talia Rivera »

A new study that maps economic mobility has shown when it comes to escaping poverty, where people live matters. While some Southern and Midwestern cities didn't fare well by the metrics used, residents of Northeastern cities such as Boston have an easier time moving up the ladder.
Boston still struggles with struggles areas of concentrated poverty, but Tiziana Dearing, Associate Professor of Macro Practice at Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, says the city has shifted in important ways.
"We are much better integrated, much more equal, much less overtly racist than we were 20 years ago — and than most of America thinks that we are now," Dearing says.
