GSSW - ZOOM-IN & LEARN series: Social Workers as CEO/COOs

Recent corporate struggles demonstrate the need for the very skills that social workers bring.   All companies–and society at large–could benefit from the system-focused, culturally sensative social work mindset.  Whether working within a non-profit, government or private sector, combining your traditional social work skills with business fundamentals can be powerful to serve employee, clients and the community as a whole.  Alumni panelists share their experiences of working as a social worker within C-suite executives.


  • Cat Hughey, Director of Programs and Operations, Village Exchange Center
  • Karen Fox Elwell, CEO, Growing Home
  • Alexa Cataldo, COO, Sample Supports
  • …more can be added, check back for updates.

Please note that the event will be recorded through zoom, in hopes that this can be added to the Student Resource Portal webinar listing.  If you have any questions or concerns with this, please email Stacy Said directly prior to the event (stacy.said@du.edu) and we will accomodate.  Thank you!
