Asilomar Leadership Skills Seminar Receives ACE Award

March 19, 2012

 

The Asilomar Leadership Skills Seminar of the Community College League of California (CCLC) won the 2012 ACE Inclusive Excellence Group State Network Leadership Award for the Advancement of Women in Higher Education.

The award recognizes an outstanding and innovative program, sponsored by a state ACE Women’s Network or by a college or university, that helps advance or support women or women’s issues in higher education. Dr. Pamila Fisher, chancellor emeritus of the Yosemite Community College District and director of the project, was presented with the award at ACE’s 94th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles last week.

“The Asilomar Leadership Skills Seminar has an outstanding track record of helping women move up the ranks of California’s community college system,” said Diana Cordova, assistant vice president of ACE’s Leadership Programs. “ACE and its Inclusive Excellence Group are very pleased to recognize the program’s important contribution to diversifying the Golden State’s higher education leadership.”

The seminar’s main objective is to increase the number of women in senior leadership positions in California’s community colleges. When the program was first established in 1984, there were only seven women CEOs. Today, there are more than 40. The program found success over the years thanks to the voluntary efforts of dozens of women community college presidents and administrative support from the Yosemite Community College District and, more recently, the CCLC.
