Boston millennials take the mic

Boston Toastmasters  is excited to be part of the Fierce Urgency of Now festival. The Boston Foundation and City Awake’s City of Millennials reports shows that Greater Boston’s millennial population is more racially and ethnically diverse and more educated than ever before. However, it also exposed the many barriers that population faces in Boston as well. That is why Fierce Urgency of Now is so important. We are proud to partner with City Awake for this cause.

Join us for an afternoon of storytelling about the millennial of color experience in Boston. During this workshop style meeting, seasoned Toastmasters will present speeches about their personal challenges and triumphs as minorities or allies to minorities, and will be supportively evaluated. We invite you to come hear relatable stories, and practice public speaking yourself by sharing your story during an impromptu speaking exercise.


Mindset Mixer

Networking events can often be dull, forced, even anxiety-inducing! But what if you could share more than just “what you do for work” in a safe, supportive environment?

Join us for Mindset Mixer, a community for individuals looking to expand their professional and personal development by utilizing a growth mindset. We’ll discuss how our mindsets have contributed to our failures and successes, and explore authentic, organic ways to truly connect and empower each other.

Mindset Mixer will feature several seasoned speakers that have used a growth mindset to help them learn from their toughest challenges and propel them to biggest victories in their respective industries.
