SUBJECT: Mills: Inside and Out

Dear all,

This week, Mills' local engagement and international influence were on display. On the heels of reunion weekend, which brought hundreds of Mills alums back to campus to celebrate and give back, the buzz continued with multiple standing-room-only events. On Wednesday afternoon, Golden State Warriors Chief Financial Officer Jennifer Cabalquinto visited with Mills students who are studying accounting in the Lokey School. She shared both her insight and some Warriors' swag with her excited listeners. On Wednesday evening, Oaklanders keen on the city council race in District 6 joined us for a debate among the candidates that gave me the opportunity to moderate and ask questions posed by students in Professors Mark Henderson and Ashley Adams' public policy classes. I'm grateful to Renee Jadushlever, our vice president for strategic partnerships, for coordinating the debate logistics, and our team in the Lokey School for helping us welcome the crowd and manage the overflow with video streaming. I hope those of you who are residents of District 6 will join me in voting on November 6.

On the international front, Mills is attracting attention for leading the way on transgender inclusion. Mills' partner Ochanamizu University, the oldest women's higher education institution in Japan, and with whom Mills has formalized a collaboration, recently announced that it will be the first national women's university in Japan to open to transgender students. This week, we also heard from a professor at Japan Women's University who is translating Mills' groundbreaking 2013 Report on Inclusion of Transgender and Gender Fluid Students into Japanese so it can be posted in a research journal for Japanese universities and research institutions. If you missed Dr. Susan Stryker's convocation address last week, you can watch it here to learn more about how Mills continues to bring intellectual engagement and social justice together in ways that change the world.

All best,

Beth Signature
