Join the University of Massachusetts Boston Center for Collaborative Leadership on June 5th at the Seaport World Trade Center to celebrate the graduation of the 2015 Emerging Leaders Program fellows.  This group of 41 emerging leaders from the corporate, nonprofit and government sectors started the program in September 2014 and wrapped up the program mid-April 2015. In the program, fellows participated in leadership skill sessions facilitated by top experts in the field, dialogued with Boston’s current leaders, and participated in an experiential team project.

Linda Pizzuti Henry

Keynote speaker is Linda Pizzuti Henry, managing director of the Boston Globe. Linda is also a passionate community activist, serving as the trustee of the Liverpool Football Club Foundation, and as a director of the Red Sox Foundation and the John W. Henry Family Foundation. And as if that isn’t enough, she a television producer and the creator of a TV show on NESN that teaches children math and science through baseball.

Philip J. Carver

We will also honor civic activist Philip J. Carver, an Emerging Leaders Program alumnus from the class of 2006, with the third annual Leading the Way award. Philip is the associate director of community relations and economic development at the University of Massachusetts Boston. He brings a long history of civic engagement to his work, where he serves as the university’s liaison to city, state, and federal government entities, as well as to members of the local community, promoting a symbiotic relationship with the university and its internal goals.

We look forward to seeing you on June 5th!

“It has been rewarding to work with people from other sectors that I would not generally have the opportunity to learn from. I feel that we all brought different skill-sets and experiences in which to draw from which made us a stronger team. ”
