Meet Jo Mackness, staff advisor designate to the Regents
Though the roles Jo Mackness has held are diverse — consultant, lecturer, corporate responsibility lead and chief human resources officer, to name a few — her professional accomplishments reveal a clear theme: a passion for leading change that makes people’s lives better.
Today, she is assistant vice chancellor and chief operating officer of UC Berkeley’s Division of Student Affairs and a leader of several UC Berkeley and systemwide committees. She’s also the incoming staff advisor to the University of California Regents, a role in which she will harness her deep knowledge of employee experience to help make UC a better place to work.
“I believe we have an opportunity to leverage the University of California as a people social mobility engine, not just for students, but also for staff,” Jo says.
