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 »
