Meet The Founders

Erica A. Anderson, LMSW, CAMS II

(Founder MSWC)

Erica believes millennials are vital to every aspect of society. They are no longer just the future, they are the present. She believes it is critical to properly nurture millennials, so individuals can continue to develop great and innovative ideas. She started MSWC, to nurture persons within her profession of Social Work and to provide each millennial Social Worker with the resources needed to blossom. Erica has a deep love, and passion for the profession of social work and has aims to create a safe space for millennial Social Workers to continue their education and network among their peers.

Eryca S. Taylor, LMSW

(Co-Founder MSWC)

As co-founder of the Millennial Social Work Conference, Eryca believes that change happens when people are given the guidance they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their full potential. Eryca believes that millennials are changing the workplace for the better as they’re the largest generation in the U.S. labor force. She’s passionate about her career as a Social Worker and believes a community designed specifically for her generation will increase happiness and productivity for Social Workers throughout America.

Why Millennials?

This conference is unique in its intent to help millennial Social Workers engage, collaborate, and network with each other all while ensuring individuals leave inspired, motivated, connected, and informed.

After attending many conferences, it became evident of the lack of information catering to the millennial mind. From there, this technology-driven, innovative, engaging, personable conference was formed. Through research we know that millennials are more productive with group work, hands-on activities, mentorships, and networking; MSWC will offer opportunities for all of those necessary elements.
