#MyBoston: Making Equity a Reality
Now more than ever it is imperative that the next generation engage in the most pressing issues facing our region. In a way, it’s been forced upon their shoulders. In recent months, we’ve seen a global health crisis capsize the way we all work and live. We’ve seen racial injustices and disparities continue to highlight the inequities across our nation. And, we’ve seen politics divide our country like never before.
Young professionals of color throughout Boston make up the majority of the population and the workforce. During the City Awake and Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Fierce Urgency of Now Festival, September 16-20, we’ll hear from Mayor Martin J. Walsh and his newly appointed Chief of Equity, Dr. Karilyn Crockett, who will be interviewed by a local young professional of color. They’ll discuss what their goals are for the city and what is being done to ensure equity becomes a reality.
