NEWTON – The Newton-Needham Regional Chamber will virtually unveil the first-ever 50 Most Influential Business People of Color in the Western Suburbs list on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 10:30 a.m. via Zoom.

The goal of this project is to showcase the individuals and employers who are making a positive contribution to the economic and social fabric of our west suburban businesses and nonprofits, said the Chamber.

“But we also want it to be a way to start a conversation about where we fall short and how we can do even better,” said the Chamber.

The Chamber is also hosting a panel discussion entitled “The ROI of DEI: Why diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to success in the suburbs” featuring five leaders who’ve made our “50 Most Influential” list.

Among the panelists is Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer.
