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.
Elizabeth Nahar currently serves as Director of Sustainability for ChildObesity180, a childhood obesity prevention organization at Tufts University. More about Macro-SIL Leadership Speakers Luncheon with Elizabeth Nahar »

Young adults who age out of foster care face a double whammy, says Boston College Graduate School of Social Work Associate Professor Stephanie Berzin. “They not only lose the support and services that come with foster care,” she explains, “but they also lose housing."
Berzin, who chairs GSSW’s Children, Youth, and Families concentration, co-organized a forum on campus earlier this month to discuss the issue of housing for such vulnerable young adults. The forum featured agencies and housing programs from across the state with a record of success in serving this at-risk population. More than 100 representatives from the practice, academic, and policy areas of the human and social services fields attended the forum.
