Kroc School Professor Paula Cordeiro Honored as Leader in Diversity, Inclusion for Contributions to San Diego Communities

Kroc School Dammeyer Distinguished Professor Paula Cordeiro was honored with the Legler Benbough Legacy Award on Monday during RISE San Diego’s fourth annual awards ceremony. RISE San Diego, which creates leadership opportunities for diverse individuals in San Diego, distributed seven Inclusive Leadership in Action Awards during an online presentation, instead of an in-person event at the Joe and Vi Jacobs Center dining hall.

Tony Young, president and co-founder of RISE, noted that Cordeiro has been a longtime supporter of RISE San Diego’s urban leadership program.
