National Coalition of 100 Black Women
Oakland, CA–March 02, 2013 Mills College President Alecia DeCoudreaux was honored at a special awards celebration today hosted by the Oakland-Bay Area Chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women.
Committed to providing programs that increase the participation of African American women in economic, civic, entrepreneurial, and human service arenas through education, scholarship, and collaboration, the organization’s mission is to support the next generation of successful African American women.
“I am incredibly honored to be recognized with this award and proud to say Mills is living proof of the power of educating women,” DeCoudreaux said. “Since its founding, Mills has empowered women to overcome the social barriers that have excluded them from educational and career opportunities.”
The celebration recognized the contributions of 10 Bay Area women who exemplify the organization’s vision as a force for gender equity and advocate for leadership development critical to the success of women and girls of color.
For more than three decades, DeCoudreaux has been a strong advocate for the advancement of women.
