Viewing Location: Online
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster
The University of California system employs more than 8,000 professionals in IT roles across its 10 campuses and five health systems. How can workforce data inform current and future priorities for diversity, equity, and inclusion across this vast network of institutions? The session will present snapshots and trends for gender equity and other demographic criteria based on data from 2013 through 2020. Further texture and insights will be provided by CIOs from two of the larger campuses, one with a health center. Evidence-based guidance and suggestions to improve recruitment and retention of top talent, especially in a post-COVID context, will also be addressed.
