The Black Staff and Faculty Organization (BSFO) had a busy and productive year! In addition to their annual Black History Month celebrations — which this year included a celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop — they hosted an array of health and wellness-centered events during BSFO Wellness Month and an informative event for Diabetes Awareness Month. And, they still made time for several fundraisers to help raise money for their annual scholarship.

But, says BSFO Chair Joyce Price, the most meaningful part of this year was the support members received from their executive sponsors:

  • Cheryl Lloyd, Vice President, Systemwide Human Resources and Chief Human Resources Officer, University of California
  • Paul Williams, Associate Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer, UC Procurement
  • Yvette Gullatt, Vice President for Graduate and Undergraduate Affairs, Vice Provost for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, and Chief Diversity Officer for the University of California

“BSFO greatly appreciates our executive sponsors and all that they have done to help make us a successful employee resource group throughout 2023,” says Joyce. “Roni and I look forward to working with you for another productive year!”
