REACH Interview Series: Justin Kang

With today’s edition of the Reach Interview series, we decided to stay local – focusing here in Boston on one of the city’s young rising stars of civic leadership. Justin Kang is the executive director of City Awake, a city innovation lab of the greater Boston and also VP of economic growth at the Boston Chamber of Commerce, where he works on mobilizing, empowering and inspiring the next generation of civic leaders in Boston. Jason shares with us insights about stepping into a very prominent leadership position as a young person – and also about how race and ethnicity play into his leadership story.
