2021 special recognition
Hilliard Solutions and the University of California, Berkeley, School of Social Welfare announced that the highlight of their jointly hosted Women in Athlete Development Symposium and Networking Event this spring is a special recognition of WNBA legend Tamika Catchings for her role as a pioneer and athlete advocate leader for social justice in sports and society.
One of the most decorated athletes of all time, Tamika Catchings has left an indelible mark at every level of the game. Catchings is a four-time Olympic gold medalist, 10-time WNBA All-Star, five-time Defensive Player of the Year, and a WNBA Champion. Beyond her on-court success, she is known for her off-court professionalism and was a three-time recipient of the Kim Perrot sportsmanship award. In 2004, she launched the Catch the Stars Foundation, which empowers youth by providing goal setting programs that promote fitness, literacy and youth development.
