This fund honors Mimi Lufkin’s 23 years of leadership to the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity and the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity Education Foundation.
Mimi Lufkin has over 40 years of experience as an educator advocating for access, equity and diversity in education and workforce development. She has been a high school teacher, teacher educator, founder and executive director of a microenterprise development program for low income rural women, director of a statewide gender equity professional development program and a community college director of development. From 1994 to 2018, Mimi served as the Chief Executive Officer of the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE), a consortium of state and local education and workforce development organizations. NAPE provides professional development for educators to transform institutions and classrooms to increase the participation, achievement and completion of underrepresented students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and career and technical education. Mimi continues to support NAPE in her retirement as CEO Emerita.
Your contributions support NAPE’s capacity to fulfill its equity, diversity and workforce mission when grant or restricted funds cannot be used.
Thank-you for supporting Mimi’s Fund and NAPE’s Mission,
Ben Williams, PhD, CEO
