Dr. Su Jin Gatlin Jez Receives the 2021 CAEL Pamela Tate Rise Award


California Competes Executive Director Dr. Su Jin Gatlin Jez has been awarded the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning’s (CAEL) Pamela Tate Rise Award for 2021. She received the award earlier today at the CAEL Annual Conference.

CAEL established the Pamela Tate Rise Award in 2018, on the occasion of Tate’s retirement as president of CAEL, to perpetually recognize her commitment to connecting and empowering the community that serves adult learners. With this award, CAEL recognizes those, like Dr. Jez, who have made significant contributions to expanding working adults’ access to economic mobility, community engagement, and continuing higher education.

The committee was unanimous in its decision as Dr. Jez’s dedication and leadership in supporting adult learners has brought forth far-reaching impacts for bridging California’s higher education and workforce sectors.

“I, along with the Leadership Council and staff of California Competes, am committed to advancing policy solutions that create better higher education and workforce alignment and help more adult learners move successfully along pathways to high road jobs.”
Dr. Su Jin Gatlin Jez, California Competes Executive Director
