    “I have always taken seriously my responsibility – as a journalist, a woman of color, and a public voice – to shed light on issues of sexual and domestic violence, which impact so many people in our communities, When we are intentional about discussing these issues frankly and openly, we can begin the process of understanding them and working towards solutions. I am so honored to receive this award from Jane Doe, an organization doing tremendous work across the state to increase understanding of sexual and domestic violence.” ~ Callie Crossley


    Bob Rivers, Chair & CEO of Eastern Bank
    Eastern Bank, America's oldest and largest mutual bank, has a legacy of championing the spirit of social and economic justice and the pursuit of opportunity for all, so it's no wonder that its Chair and CEO, Bob Rivers, has been described as "an advocate for a more-inclusive local business community" and "a diversity game-changer." Learn more about Bob here.

    "I am humbled to receive this recognition from Jane Doe. The business community has a critically important role to play in advancing social justice, in particular addressing issues of sexual violence and harassment in the workplace, and I am proud of the work that Eastern Bank has done, in partnership with Jane Doe and others, to help make our community a safer and more accepting place for everyone.” ~ Bob Rivers
