Meet Hilary

Name: Hilary Steinman

Title: Senior Commodity Manager, Professional Services

Department/Unit: Systemwide Procurement/UC Finance

Location: Oakland

When you started working at UCOP: I started working at UCOP in February of 2022 so still pretty new!

What you do at UCOP in 5 words or less: Guide departments on financial decisions

The best part about working for OP: My lovely colleagues and the mission of the UC system

Something your colleagues don’t know about you: I am a huge New York Knicks fan, even though I’m an East Bay native (I lived in New York City for five years).

One weird fact about the town you grew up in: My hometown has a vibrant, albeit reclusive, commune still going strong from the 1960s. In high school we used to call them “purple people,” because the folks there live in a community of purple houses.

If you could have any job in the world (besides the one you have now), it would be: A beat reporter for a local newspaper in the 1970s

Employee resource group you co-lead: Sustainability Employee Resource Group (SERG)

How long you’ve been a member: February 2022 (As long as I’ve been at UCOP!)

Your favorite part about belonging to this ERG: The community and our shared passion for the environment — it’s great to have a space where people who share common values can connect

Why you hope other colleagues will consider joining your ERG: We have such a great, hybrid-style community where we can chat, share and delve into sustainability in a fun and approachable way. It’s so nice to feel good about the planet, with all the negativity out there, so please come join us!
