Women’s History Month events continue with documentary screening and mental wellness experts
March is Women’s History Month, and the 2022 theme is “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope” — a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic and a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided healing and hope throughout history.
The President’s Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (PACSW) is continuing its celebration this week with two additional community events. All UCOP staff are invited and encouraged to attend and participate. Listings reflect Pacific Time.

The Anatomy of the Invisible Load: Navigating ‘All the Things’ with Compassion and Grace
March 28, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. | Invisible Load Zoom link
We’ve all been there; it feels like we are carrying the weight of the world on our shoulders, and we are walking a tightrope that seems to be burning at both ends. This program will focus on defining the invisible load and strategies, support and resources to move gracefully through the ups and downs. This discussion will feature UCOP experts Genie Kim, Ph.D., director of student mental health and wellbeing, UCOP, and Nancy Pluzdrak, Ed.D., executive director of UCOP Human Resources.
