The format of the new chat series will be similar to that of the Thursday night chats, but the topics will focus more on careers in macro social work practice.

#MacroSW chat partner Karen Zgoda (@KarenZgoda) will host the chat. The guest expert for our first chat is Nicki Sanders, MSW, founder of Packaged for Success (@PkgdForSuccess).

Nicki obtained her bachelor’s degree in sociology from Trinity College and a master’s degree in social work from the University of Maryland School of Social Work. Her practice provides management coaching and consulting to businesses that want to start internship programs.
