Setting the standard: Women in leadership at UC
After spending 40 years cultivating a human resources career, UCOP Executive Director of Systemwide Talent Management Donna Salvo says that UC has made her dream job possible.
A trailblazing female leader, Salvo is currently responsible for initiatives related to systemwide strategies and programs at UC, including attracting, hiring, deploying, developing and retaining talent. She is also the lead sponsor of UC Women’s Initiative for Professional Development (UC WI), a program focused on developing women in higher education careers.
“We took time to define a core program that would help women build their confidence, their network, and their ability to negotiate,” Salvo says. “[Women] must know how to elevate themselves personally and professionally to do the things that they aspire to do. We have some fabulous women in the university and we have fabulous women across America.”
UC is committed to creating a network of women professionals who can contribute to the university’s future success. Read more from the UCPath Center.Tags: professional development, women
