Every wave starts small, building and curving, until it finally crests – bearing all the force and momentum it’s gathered along the way. The same often goes for leaders and social entrepreneurs: They spend months and years gathering their might, and then, all at once, their talent and influence flow over everything.
From all of us at Providence Media, we are proud to present this year’s Who to Watch, a celebration of local trailblazers and the work they’ve set into motion. Many are organizations, with missions to shape the cultural landscape of Rhode Island. Others are individuals, who are helping transform hallowed institutions. But they are all worth keeping an eye on – not only now, but throughout the coming year. The waves are rolling into the Ocean State, and they’re stronger than ever.
