The list was put together by the Charles River Regional Chamber, which champions businesses and nonprofits in Boston’s western suburbs, and Get Konnected!, a cross-cultural networking organization in Boston.
According to organizers, the list aims to “shine a light on the remarkable, but too often unnoticed and overlooked, business people of color and the companies that are making a difference in Greater Boston’s western suburbs.” Honorees were chosen by a panel of judges from a field of about 200 nominations.
“It’s a wonderful honor to be recognized by the Charles River Regional Chamber and Get Konnected! in such a professionally impactful and personally meaningful way,” Ward said of the recognition. “I have always felt an incumbent responsibility to use my leadership position and platform to make a positive contribution in the community where I live and work.”
This is the second time that Ward was named to the prestigious list. He made the original list in 2020, which organizers said has since served as a resource for organizations seeking new employees, board members, and thought leaders across the region.
The new list, organizers said, acts as a “measure of not just where we are, and how far we’re come, but how much further we must go.”
