A big congrats to Dr. Pam Perlich, who today received an outstanding achievement award from the YWCA at their annual leadership luncheon.
The awards are given annually to women who have made exceptional contributions in reducing racism and empowering women, and Perlich does just that through her efforts to “democratize data” via the Utah Community Data Project at the David Eccles School of Business’s Bureau of Economic and Business Research.
“Through her work at BEBR, Pam has established herself as the state’s leading demographer, with special emphasis on minority populations, immigration, and the demographics of education,” noted BEBR Director James Wood. “Her work has been a great credit to the David Eccles School of Business and the University of Utah, and her work has been instrumental in the university’s outreach and civic engagement efforts. This outstanding achievement award is well-deserved.”
