On May 1st, BC Social Work hosted its first ever Social Innovation Symposium, engaging well-respected community leaders with students, alumni, and other social work professionals. Organized and convened by current MSW students in partnership with faculty leadership at the Center for Social Innovation, the Symposium provided a forum for attendees to consider how they can innovate for change, both in their current work, and with an eye to the future. This year's theme centered around economic justice; speakers and workshops examined innovative practices in using assets, the built environment, and social capital to develop and improve access to economic resources in marginalized communities.

University of Connecticut School of Social Work Dean Salome Raheim presented the ninth annual Pinderhughes Diversity Lecture on April 15 at Boston College. Salome's talk, entitled "Race and Justice: From Analysis to Action," focused on the current dialogue on police violence against African Americans, as well as the mass incarceration of blacks in the U.S. prison system, and she offered a call to action. Raheim was the latest in a series of speakers invited to BCSSW to speak to this year's diversity theme of Race + Justice.
"The focus of race and justice for this lecture series, needless to say it is so timely," said Raheim in her opening remarks. "That the Boston College School of Social Work identified this theme before the nation's attention returned to it in the late summer last year says a great deal about the forward thinking and the commitment of this school."
