President Amy Gutmann will be honored Wednesday for Penn’s successful partnership with the Anti-Defamation League.

The ADL is a civil rights organization that advocates against anti-Semitism and all other forms of discrimination. Its Americanism Award, which will be awarded to Gutmann and Penn at an event tonight in Center City, recognizes leaders whose organizations promote “diversity and respect,” according to a press release.

This year, Penn hosted Holocaust education for Philadelphia school teachers and participated in Philadelphia’s WALK Against Hate, which raised funds for ADL programming.

Last year, the Americanism Award was presented to TD Bank’s Michael Carbone and in 2012 was presented to UPS.

The event will take place at the Wanamaker Building starting at 5:30 p.m.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that President Gutmann will be honored by the American Defamation League. She will be honored by the Anti-Defamation League. The article has been corrected to reflect that change.
