Boston, MA – The Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth (MassINC) has announced the 2020 Gateway City Champion and Innovator Awards and Dougan Sherwood, President of the Greater Haverhill Chamber is among the winners. Sherwood will receive the award for small business inclusivity and diversity during the third session in the virtual series on October 22nd from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm.
MassINC will feature the work of Gateway City champions and innovators who are leading the way by advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in three key areas: civic leadership, education, and small business.
“Pro-inclusivity values are consistent with talent and businesses in high growth markets, namely technology, life sciences and advanced manufacturing. We’re lucky to be so diverse in Haverhill. It’s our competitive advantage,” said Sherwood.
