The TOYL Awards are presented annually by City Awake, a program of the GBCC that connects, engages, and celebrates next-generation leaders. The awards recognize the contributions of current and emerging young, greater Boston leaders who have demonstrated professional, personal, and civic commitment to improving the quality of life within our region.
The 2021 honorees include:
“Our 2021 Ten Outstanding Young Leaders are boldly shaping the future of our region. Representing a broad range of professional sectors, each honoree is recognized for their unique and innovative contributions to Greater Boston,” said Chamber President and CEO, James E.
