City Awake: Words of Wisdom Dinner ft. Bennie Wiley

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Please note: this program is for young professionals from Greater Boston and who are between the ages of 21 and 39. 

In an intimate dinner setting, Greater Boston's next generation of leaders have the opportunity to hear from those who came before them. On March 14th, we are excited to feature Benaree "Bennie" Pratt Wiley, Principal of The Wiley Group. For fifteen years, Bennie was the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Partnership, Inc., an organization that strengthened Greater Boston’s capacity to attract, retain, and develop talented professionals of color.

Bennie is currently a Director on boards of the Dreyfus Mutual Funds, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, and CBIZ (NYSE: CBZ). She has served as the Chair of PepsiCo’s African American Advisory Board, and formerly served on the board of First Albany (NASDAQ: FACT). Her civic activities include serving on the boards of Dress for Success Boston, Partners Continuing Care, the Black Philanthropy Fund and Howard University where she serves as Vice Chair.
