ABL Leader Lab is built around the idea that top business leaders in Massachusetts have a lot to offer when it comes to tackling some of the Commonwealth’s most pressing public policy questions. ABL Leader Lab is an interactive day-long working session where business leaders will engage in hands-on problem solving with top policy experts – and those solutions won’t just sit on a shelf.

ABL Leader Lab will consist of four tracks: Workforce Housing, Health Care Cost Containment, Innovation in Education, and Public Transportation. Participants will be briefed on these areas, and then put to work grappling with big questions on each topic. No theoretical exercise, ABL Leader Lab will offer participants the opportunity to engage in the real-world advancement of their proposed policy solutions for a year after the convening.

Nearly 200 attendees from the business community attended, interacted and engaged with creating solutions for our four tracks!

No reports collecting dust on shelves…

  • In advance of ABL Leader Lab, the Alliance will establish working groups to mirror the issue tracks that will be held at the event: Workforce Housing, Health Care Cost Containment, Innovation in Education, and Public Transportation.
  • The working groups will be charged with advancing the ideas produced at ABL Leader Lab, giving attendees the opportunity to continue to engage around the issues they care about after the event. Working group participation will be encouraged both virtually and in-person.
  • Each working group will be headed by a high-profile Alliance Board member(s) or business leader(s), and will determine its own process and goals.
  • Each working group will operate at least until the following Boston ABL Leader Lab.
