Penney; Jose Masso, communications director of Massport; Dani Monroe, founder and president of Center Focus International, Inc.; Rick Jakious, chief executive officer of the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network; and Michelle Shell, chairperson of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority Board (to name a few). Professor Marc Lavine briefed them on their team projects whose sponsors include: Massachusetts Business Roundtable and FEMA, UMass Boston Center for Social Policy, the Trotter Institute, Think College, Massachusetts Special Legislative Commission on Postpartum Depression, and Cradles to Crayons.
