January 14, 2019

The School of Education’s Bianca Baldridge is to be recognized with an Outstanding Women of Color award from UW-Madison. Baldridge is an assistant professor with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Policy Studies.

Dating back to 2007, this award honors women of color among UW-Madison faculty, staff, students and in the greater Madison community for excellent work in areas like social activism, community building and research that promote inclusivity and advocate for disadvantaged, marginalized populations.

The award recognizes women of color who are also invested in improving the Madison community.

Baldridge has deeply rooted herself in the Madison area by building relationships with not only UW-Madison, but the Madison Metropolitan School District and community organizations, like the Goodman Community Center and Lussier Community Center.

Baldridge has a strong reputation for her commitment to Madison youth, from working on her path-breaking research to organizing with Mobilizing Youth Voices for Racial Justice. She is known for her combination of academia and activism within her research, another reason she has been chosen for this award.

This year’s honorees will be recognized at the 11th annual Outstanding Women of Color Awards Reception on Tuesday, March 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge in the Pyle Center, 716 Langdon St.
