The award is recognition of outstanding organizational and professional leadership in promoting diversity in Minnesota psychology.  BraVada Garrett-Akinsanya, PhD, presented the award to Coleman andsaid, "In the past, we would not have had the courage or insight to recognize the brilliant leadership and sacrifices that have been made for us in order to have a diverse experience of psychology.  But, today, I am honored to say that Dr. Eli Coleman, our nominee, has exhibited great leadership, courage, effort, and commitment in his efforts to change systems.  He has indeed broken down systemic barriers and has promoted diversity competence through practice, teaching, advocacy, and research.  It is on his shoulders that we all proudly stand."
