Honoring Socially Responsible Leadership

The Opening Boston Awards raise vital funds to support BCCJ’s leadership development programs and networks. BCCJ’s programs connect and energize youth, professionals, and businesses and our networks build a community of socially responsible leaders that advances social justice throughout Greater Boston.

Event Chair: Steven H. Wright, Executive Partner, Holland & Knight LLP
