Welcome. Thank you for visiting The Boston Club’s website. We are one of the largest communities of women executives and professional leaders in the Northeast. We are both a club and a cause. As a club, we offer programming, events and other opportunities for leaders of advanced professional stages and backgrounds to connect with, engage with and enrich each other.

Our core belief is that more women in significant and visible leadership roles will mean better business performance and strengthened economic health in our communities.
Joyce A. Murphy, Executive Vice Chancellor of UMass Medical School and Commonwealth Medicine has been recognized as one of Worcester Business Journal’s Outstanding Women in Business. Joyce said it was her younger brother, Brian, who inspired her to follow a career path focused on supporting underserved populations. Brian was 11 when he died from Hunter’s Syndrome at home, surrounded by family. “My journey began early on,” she said. “I learned that caring and compassion was most important. Working in health care is an incredible honor and responsibility.” Joyce was recognized for being a woman leader, fighting for the needs of underserved populations and her success in the health care field. UMass Medical School Chancellor Michael F. Collins, MD, FACP, called her "part Mother Teresa and part Eleanor Roosevelt." Joyce assumed the senior-most executive role at Commonwealth Medicine in 2011, five years after joining UMass Medical School as Commonwealth Medicine’s vice chancellor and chief operating officer.
Faviana Olivier has received Northeastern University English Department's award for Outstanding Part-Time Faculty. For 9 years, she has been teaching English and Business English to international students and MBA students, for whom the idiomatic intricacies of our business terms of art may be a third language to learn.
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Within The Boston Club, diversity is the recognition of and valuing of differences among groups, including and not limited to race, religion, class, age, gender, sexual orientation, mental and physical challenges, and work/life balance issues. Inclusion is the action of diversity, how we live, our respect for others and how we effectively utilize our leadership to promote the advancement of all women.
A diverse membership ensures the richness and vibrancy of ideas, topics and approaches. Ultimately, diversity and inclusion enhance the quality of experience, round out the membership and develop leadership depth.
