Opening Minds, Transforming Communities

For more than 20 years, LeadBoston has been making Boston a better place to live, work and raise a family.

LeadBoston is an 11-month, experiential executive education program, that focuses on the inner workings of Boston, trends and issues that impact the city's social and economic vitality, and socially responsible leadership.  The program is geared to corporate, public and non-profit mid-to-senior level executives.  It connects professionals across sectors, increasing their knowledge about the city, awareness of neighborhood realities, and their capacity to address complex work and community dynamics.

Through their participation in the program, proven leaders across a diverse spectrum of sectors, hone their understanding and ability to address and reduce the racial, gender, and social inequities that prevent some of Boston’s residents from accessing health and education resources, finding jobs to support their families, and living safe and healthy lives.

Organizations who sponsor participants have found that their delegates are more effective in solving challenging problems, making complex business decisions, managing conflict, and leading an increasingly diverse workforce.
