What brings you here?
I’ve always had a sense that there are many distinct “Bostons.” The experience of living and working in this city varies profoundly depending on who you ask, and the divide is particularly wide between the city as it’s experienced by those at academic institutions and the city known by those who grew up here, particularly in Boston’s communities of color. The Engagement Lab and the partner organizations of the TNGV initiative have built a bridge between those many Bostons, a listening space, and a true laboratory toward positive change at the most local levels. I cannot imagine more impactful work to be a part of.
