Ahmed Young, second vice president at Bose Public Affairs Group and an associate at Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, has been named by Indiana Governor Mike Pence to the Indiana Civil Rights Commission. In his role as a commissioner, Young will help evaluate incoming civil rights complaints.
“I am so honored to be chosen to serve on the Commission,” Young said. “I went into the legal profession to do the practical work that promotes justice for all people, particularly those who are under-served and under-represented in our society. It’s exciting to be part of this Commission, and have a direct role in doing this for Indiana,” he added.
In addition to his role with Bose Public Affairs Group, Young works as an attorney at Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, assisting law firm clients in commercial litigation and professional licensing issues, serving the firm’s education clients in K-12 and universities, and filing applications, petitions and pleadings in administrative and civil actions. Young’s law practice dovetails nicely into his work at Bose Public Affairs Group, where he is often working with education and non-profit clients, helping them make their voices heard in government. He also works with Bose Public Affairs Group’s Strategic Advisory Services team, helping promising businesses to develop short and long-range tactics for growth.
Outside his job, Young is very active in several volunteer roles, including working with The Indiana Partnerships Center, a group which helps schools provide extra services that connect them better to the students and communities they serve. He is a board member for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center and makes time to mentor youth through various local initiatives.
