Honoring Barbara Tinney

It is with the utmost privilege we honor a legendary leader in the New Haven community. Barbara Tinney has tirelessly dedicated over 20 years to being a change agent and a voice for social equality. She has worked in the social work field for over 30 years including as a professor at Southern Connecticut State University. Barbara remains committed to social justice, economic and education equity, strengthening families and supporting parents, family wellness, youth development and community building. Her passion has influenced various community leaders and impacted the lives of thousands of children and family. Her legacy will continue to thrive through the endurance and replication of a truthful and value driven lifestyle.

IWG is honored to present the most prestigious award to Barbara Tinney. We pay homage to her for the trailblazing work that she began 30 years ago and understand deeply the impact that her unwavering commitment for people of color that are often lost and push aside. We honor Barbara for her courage and bravery, as she stood up against racial injustice and oppressive systems. Barbara is by far one of the most dynamic and conscientious leader in New Haven, who remains at the forefront of the most complex issues related to racial equity.
