On March 3, 2021 nearly 100 individuals gathered over Zoom to hear from leaders and advocates across the state of Massachusetts to hear about the urgency of Parity on Boards brought to you by the Massachusetts Women of Color Coalition, the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, and YW Boston. Featured speakers included Senator Jason Lewis, Representative Haddad, Representative Liz Miranda, Commissioner Nurys Camargo, and Andrea Silbert, President and CEO of the Eos Foundation. We were provided with a research update showing why this legislation is urgent. Legislators and Commissioner Camargo discussed the importance of diversity in public service. The Coalition provided next steps and ways for you to take action or become a board member yourself. You can watch the recording here.

"Public boards in Massachusetts should be a model for what equitable government looks like and what better board leadership looks like, too."
"Boards composed of people with distinct experiences and backgrounds can also improve an organization’s ability to anticipate new challenges and opportunities, and solve problems." This is a main reason why YW Boston leads the @parityonboard coalition. https://www.bostonglobe.com/2021/10/01/opinion/diverse-public-boards-are-better-public-boards/
