Diversity Advancement Founders Award

The Diversity Advancement Founders Award was established in 2004 in recognition and honor of the founding members of the MCPA Affirmative Action Committee (Thelma Cook, Linda Bates-Parker, Tony Proctor, Vance Shaw, and Mike Shin). These five (5) pioneers provided wisdom and perseverance in the quest to diversify our organization. This award honors their legacy and the continuation of this mission. The purpose of this award is to recognize outstanding contributions of Midwest ACE members who provide consistent and significant leadership related to issues of diversity.
