Race Equity Leader Receives Scholarship

January 2022

Stephen Osei-Bonsu, Manager of Race Equity for Open Sky Community Services, was one of four human services employees who recently received scholarships during the Providers’ Council’s 46th Annual Convention & Expo. The Providers’ Council is an association of community-based human services providers in Massachusetts with more than 220 member organizations.

Osei-Bonsu was selected as the first recipient of the Council’s Foreign-Born Leader Scholarship, given in partnership with the African Bridge Network. He is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at William James College.

Open Sky’s President & CEO Ken Bates was delighted with Osei-Bonsu’s selection. “Stephen is an incredible role model for other staff in our organization. We are fortunate that the human services industry has an extraordinarily diverse workforce. As we work towards achieving race equity for both our employees and the people we serve, we need to support the career paths of leaders like Stephen who bring a unique perspective to their work.”
