Departing staff advisor reflects on work to “elevate the common threads” of staff voices
Jason Valdry learned early in his career with UC that he is happiest when he is giving back to the university. And serving as staff advisor to the UC Board of Regents was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.
“I went into this role without a clear sense of just how big a responsibility it would be, but the hard work has been worth it,” said Valdry. “It has been truly fulfilling to take what I hear from employees around the system and elevate the common threads — so individual voices aren’t lost among the 150,000 plus staff members working throughout the UC system.”
Valdry’s two-year term has sped by, and he is happy to share what he’s learned with others who are considering applying. Read the full interview with Valdry.
