UCOP Young Professionals Power Panel Dec. 4: New Leaders, New Opportunities

With any change in leadership comes new opportunities. How does one prepare for a transition in leadership, and how does one remain agile and succeed under a new management structure?

Join UCOP’s Young Professionals Association (YPA) for a panel discussion and question-and-answer session, entitled New Leaders, New Opportunities, on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 12 to 1 p.m. in 9204 Franklin.

Panelists include three UCOP leaders who have managed to successfully navigate such changes:

  • Assistant Vice Provost Yvette Gullatt, Education Partnerships
  • Associate Vice President Debora Obley, Budget and Capital Resources
  • Deputy to the Chief of Staff Gail Riley, Office of the Secretary of the Regents

The room has limited capacity, so please RSVP to Chris Parmelee at if you are interested in attending. You can also participate via ReadyTalk; dial in to 1-866-740-1260 and enter access code 2873333.

Here are some of the questions the YPA wants to ask the panelists:

  • How would you engage the new president or other leader in the elevator?
  • What is the appropriate time and place to bring ideas to the attention of new leadership?
  • How do you personally prepare for a change in leadership?
  • Who is the best boss or other leader you have worked for, and why?
  • How would you spotlight your individual contributions to set you apart from your peers?

You are encouraged to bring your own questions and your lunch to this event.
