On Thursday, October 13th, I will be hosting my first Twitter chat as a #MacroSW partner. I was invited to be a partner for MacroSW (Macro Social Work) over the summer. Macro social work focuses on “big systems” – advocacy, community building, politics, policy, etc., and how those systems affect how we engage with our communities and how we interact with those systems. Though I love micro social work, which is direct practice (working with individuals, families, and groups), it is macro social work where I shine and thrive. Since I am not in a traditional social work role within my advocacy work and now with my new position at WID (World Institute on Disability), it is nice to be among like-minded social workers who love to look at the big picture of the world, and work on solutions to fix the problems that exists.
