Things aren't really back to normal yet here in Boston. My office was open today, but the streets on two sides of the building are closed. I went to a new café for lunch because all my favorites are still shut. My friends who live right at the site of the second bomb - whose apartment a bunch of us were in at the time of Monday's events - are still staying with friends. The streets around my office, a block from Copley Square, are crowded by oddly quiet.
Last month, I was lucky enough to attend the White House Forum on Cross-Sector Leadership, which was co-hosted by the InterSector Project. The day was devoted to exploring the need for greater cross-sector collaboration, and how cultivating individual leaders can help bring the sectors closer together.
