Track 1: Education and Awareness

There are many education and awareness programs on a variety of equity and inclusion related topics available at UC Berkeley as well as through UCOP. These include resources like the Multicultural Education Program (MEP) workshops, the UCOP implicit bias series, KEYS classes, and more. During the summer of 2018, we brought a customized MEP program to IST, a requirement for all staff to attend. We are also discussing additional trainings and awareness activities that we will make mandatory for all supervisors and managers, and strongly recommend for all. A diversity and inclusion track has been added to our 2018 OCIO/IST Workforce Development Plan.
