Jay Hooley of State Street Receives Social Leadership Award
Jay Hooley, CEO of State Street Corporation, a NEC member, has been awarded the 2016 Lewis Family Foundation CEO Social Leadership Award by the Boston Business Journal.
Hooley, who is the co-chair of the 2016 New England Council Annual Dinner, is being recognized for creating Boston WINS, also known as the Boston Workforce Investment Network. Boston WINS is a partnership between State Street and five non-profits to create career paths and job readiness for Boston’s Youth. The partnership provides three pathways for students looking to receive a job training credentials or to pursue a two- or four-year college degree. Boston WINs demonstrates Hooley’s dedication to the idea that improved education will help make a stronger workforce. In addition to Boston WINs, State Street has committed to hire one thousand Boston youth over the next four years.
“His vision emanates all the way down,” says Bob Giannino, CEO of uAspire, one of the five non-profits. “With Jay’s leadership they are crafting a way forward. Education is a difference maker and young people who are the first in their families to go to college need extra support in their lives.”
The New England Council congratulates Jay Hooley on receiving the Social Leadership Award and thanks him for all his efforts to better prepare Boston’s youth for the future.
