Creating Sisterhood and Sacred Spaces


Years ago, competition was the “Big C”. We were all competing to get to the “top”.  Competition showed up in many ways from unnecessary academic pressure put on students to nonprofit organizations fighting over small amounts of funding that generated little impact, to women not trusting other women in the workplace. Today, the “Big C” stands for collaboration.  We understand that the 21st century skills students need to succeed include teamwork and social emotional learning, that two agencies combining efforts allows them to reach a larger audience and to go deeper – not just wider, and that we, as women, are stronger together. 

I am a CEO who is also a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I am a professor at a Women’s University. I have dedicated my career to programs, agencies, and activities that support women and girls for over 20 years. Sisterhood is important to me!! Amongst other things, Sisterhood is built on collaboration. We are truly interdependent.

What does collaboration look like for Nicki Sanders Leadership Consulting?

-Collaboration looks like “Social Work Sisters” joining forces to provide career workshops for undergraduate and graduate social work students and recent graduates.

Coffee and Cases: What You Didn’t Learn in Social Work School about Building a Successful Social Work Career

Laila El-Asmar, LCSW-C and Nicki Sanders, MSW, are joining together for two sessions to deliver to students and grads the truth about social work that you can’t learn from a textbook or in a BSW or MSW classroom. Get ready for dynamic discussion and interactive exercises. Session one will answer your questions about field placements, degree concentrations/tracks, licensing, and whether social work really is the right field for you. Session two gets down to the nitty gritty to discuss the challenges many graduates face in launching and building a long-term social work career.   Register on Eventbrite.
