ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
Dear UC San Diego Colleague:
Join us and share your thoughts on the advancement of women faculty at UC! What does it take to succeed at UC? What are some best practices already in place? What more is needed?
Associate President Linda Williams, Presidential Staff Fellow Amy Levine and Director of Faculty Equity Programs Sheila O'Rourke, from UC Office of the President, are visiting all the UC campuses and lab to solicit ideas and collect information on innovative local programs that address the challenges faced by women at UC.
This project is part of a system-wide Creating Change Initiative geared toward UC women that develops a strategic platform focused on addressing the career advancement of women in the University of California. The purpose of the visits is to gather information on current practices regarding advancing the professional career development of UC's women, determine which practices can be replicated and assess whether a system-wide approach to these issues would be useful.
The Forums will be organized by faculty and staff and all are welcome to attend. Your feedback will be critical so please join us and bring your colleagues!
