More Information

Nguyen’s resume ought to lead with the fact she became the youngest partner at Bowditch & Dewey’s century-plus history, at age 31. It led her Power 50 profile last year, after all. But that’s not exactly what makes Nguyen among the region’s most influential people, as she is constantly using her skills and intellect to push for change and advocate for those most in need.

She’s the chair of the United Way of Central Massachusetts and vice chair of the City of Worcester’s Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee, which aims to update the city’s hiring standards for a more diverse city workforce that can better match the city’s population. There’s also the example she sets. She grew up in subsidized housing in Worcester, studied at the University of Pennsylvania as an undergraduate, and then got her law degree at Boston College. When it came time to settle into a career, she returned home.

What makes Central Mass. unique? The young leadership. There is diversity at the table.

Good teachers: Even though I was born in America, Vietnamese is technically my first language because that’s all my parents spoke to me. I learned to speak English from Sesame Street and Mister Rogers.
