The UC Office of the President’s Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (PACSW) examines issues regarding the status of women at UCOP and analyzes existing policies, procedures and programs that affect those issues. Members advance an agenda to improve the climate and opportunities for women at UCOP, identify and support model programs or activities and recommend to the president changes that will afford women equal and fair access.
PACSW established the Women We Admire speaker series in 2009 to bring women from throughout the UC system to UCOP to share insights about their careers, workplace challenges and work-life balance.Tags: Kirsten Bibbins-Domingo, PACSW, women we admire
