VIDEO: Come out on UCPath and be counted

Coming out matters. When people know someone who is LGBTQIA+, they are more likely to support equality under the law.

Coming out takes courage and UCOP Pride has created resources to help you come out at work. One focus this year is a request that all LGBTQIA+ UC staff update their sexual orientation, gender and lived name information on UCPath online.  Just like the census, information on UCPath makes sure that we are counted.

Demographic data provided on UCPath online:

  • Provides aggregate statistics (stripped of names) around tenure, attrition and promotions
  • Gives UC leaders a better understanding of the university’s strengths and challenges in serving the LGBTQIA+ community’s needs
  • Informs the creation and design of workforce development and diversity programs;
  • And is reported in the staff and diversity chapters of UC’s annual accountability report

Learn more about how staff identifying information is used (PDF).

Join us online today at 12:10 p.m.

Join UCOP Pride on Oct. 11 from 12:10 – 12:40 p.m. on Zoom, for Coming Out in UCPath: We Count. UCOP Pride members will share stories and reflections about coming out, including discussions around how we understand the meaning of “coming out” and what it means to come out at work. We’ll also review gender identity and sexual orientation self-reporting options on UCPath Online.
