Since 1991 LeadBoston has been developing leaders who are connected across
sectors, knowledgeable about diversity, aware of neighborhood realities, and
committed to social responsibility. LeadBoston creates changemakers. Graduates
look through new lenses to spot emerging trends, manage diverse teams, and build
partnerships across sectors. They are ready to lead in new ways.

Each LeadBoston class unites a diverse group of Boston area professionals. Some are in early stages of promising careers; others are seasoned performers. They have some things in common:

Program days include site visits, panel discussions, experiential exercises, analysis
in small groups, meeting well-known leaders and unsung heroes. The days require
modest reading and preparation.

The initial focus is on learning about oneself as a leader and exploring issues of diversity and social justice in the context of Boston. As the year goes on, LeadBoston becomes more action-oriented. The program provides opportunities for getting involved outside program days. By the end of the program, participants take on new forms of leadership that fit their own careers, resources, and goals. Graduate leadership is supported by the BCCJ Alumni Network.
