2022 Women of the Year

June 14, 2022 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Eastern Time (EST)

In 2012, Emerge MA held its first Women of the Year event, celebrating the inspiring work of women leaders in the Commonwealth. Over the past decade, Emerge MA has honored 26 women working across all levels of government to strengthen Massachusetts. This year, we are thrilled to announce the Honorable Dr. Yvonne Spicer, former mayor of Framingham, and Mayor Nicole LaChapelle of Easthampton as our 2022 Women Of The Year.


Dr. Spicer was the first Mayor of Framingham, leading from 2018 to 2022. Prior to being elected, she served as the Vice President of Advocacy and Educational Partnerships at the Museum of Science. She has led three different committees on the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council, and currently serves on the board of Big Brother  Big Sister of MetroWest & Central Massachusetts, Moog Foundation, and the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus.

Mayor LaChapelle was reelected to her third term in 2021. Her administration continues to work to eliminate barriers to government and development, and fostering an equitable community that sustains the local economy.

Please join us in person on Tuesday, June 14th as we celebrate these two truly incredible female Mayors at the tenth anniversary of this fantastic event.
