And on September 17, Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Dr. Karilyn Crockett, the newly appointed Chief of Equity, will discuss how they are making equity a reality and how young professionals can be engaged in the most pressing issues facing the region. Other events include keynotes, day parties, workshops, and workouts. To continue the celebration, GBCC and City Awake will announce the recipients of the Chamber's Ten Outstanding Young Leaders Awards, which includes leaders who are breaking barriers and addressing equity to create a diverse and inclusive future.
