Bowditch & Dewey attorney AiVi Nguyen will be the new chairwoman of the board at the United Way of Central Massachusetts.

Nguyen has been a member of the United Way board since 2016 and will take over the board's top position in July, Bowditch announced Tuesday. She will succeed Doug Brown, the president of UMass Memorial Community Hospitals.

Nguyen, who grew up poor as the daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, said she benefited "countless times" as a child from programs like those that the United Way supports.

"Today, while we celebrate Worcester's revitalization, there still are so many families and individuals for whom every day is a struggle," she said. "It's through the United Way that our community comes together to offer a strong helping hand, giving others the tools to succeed — just as I received — which is why I am so honored and excited to be given this opportunity."

Nguyen, who became the youngest attorney to be named partner in Bowditch's history, also serves on the city's Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council, the Greater Worcester Community Foundation, the YWCA of Central Massachusetts, the Edward M. Kennedy Community Health Center, and Squares Squared, the group that organizes the POW! WOW! arts event in Worcester.
