The MassTLC Leadership Awards have been in existence for the past three decades, and we have every intention of celebrating the leaders in our amazing tech community again this year. However, given the times, the 2020 Leadership Awards celebration will take on a new and special look this year.

We are taking time to step back and be thoughtful about how we recognize the individuals and companies that have gone over and above in this unprecedented time, including adjusting our categories, corresponding criteria, and process to reflect that. We are giving this tremendous thought and working with our communities and stakeholders to ensure that we create the best program for our community in these challenging times. More details will be available on our website on April 17th.
