UCOP looks forward to offering another opportunity for employees to take the impactful workshop UCOP Belonging and Inclusion Toward an Anti-racist Organization, on May 24, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
This workshop is an opportunity to deeply explore your own understanding of race, equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging, as well as how these topics and related behaviors tie into the UC Core Competency of Belonging and Inclusion.
