The Austin Area Urban League (AAUL) continues to be a leading provider of social and human services in the Austin area. The DDCE was privileged to sponsor the AAUL’s Equal Opportunity Day Gala which honored Dr. Timothy George, medical director of the Pediatric Neurosurgery Center of Central Texas at Dell Children’s Hospital, and Jackson Walker LLP for its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Dr. W. Charles Akins served as honorary chair of the 36th annual gala and delivered inspiring remarks as did award-winning journalist Jeff Johnson who delivered the keynote. To hear some of the comments of Akins and Johnson, view the event gala video.
Dr. Gregory J. Vincent, vice president for diversity and community engagement, serves as the board chairman for the League.
