Join us for an elegant classic tea with a twist of New England culinary favorites with finely crafted tea sandwiches, sweets, signature tea-infused cocktails, and scones in a historic and architectural marvel like the McKim Building of the Boston Public Library. The food will be complemented by a sublime discussion on ESG priorities and interests. An ESG reading list will be sent out to the attendees in advance. The event costs $50-68 depending on cocktail choices. Please rsvp to [email protected] since space is limited and the location does not permit walk-ins.

Video Library

Diversity & Inclusion

Within The Boston Club, diversity is the recognition of and valuing of differences amongst members, including and not limited to race, religion, class, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental and physical abilities, and work/life balance issues. Inclusion is the action of diversity, how we live, our respect for others and how we effectively utilize our leadership to promote the advancement of all women.



A diverse membership ensures the richness and vibrancy of ideas, topics and approaches. Ultimately, diversity and inclusion enhances the quality of experiences, promotes member engagement, and develops leadership depth.
