Dear One IT Community,
If you missed our first Diversity and Inclusion Workshop in July, good news: we are having another session! Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received, we will hold the workshop again on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 9:30 a.m. - noon. We expect this event will fill up quickly so please RSVP by Sept 20. Priority will be given to individuals that did not attend the first workshop. Please be mindful of registering if you already attended the July 31 workshop; this will be the exact same event.
Please RSVP for the event so that we may gauge demand, order enough refreshments, and ensure a big enough room. UC Berkeley is committed to providing access to all of our events. Please contact Liz Marsh, by Sept. 17 to request accommodations, advance notice is necessary to arrange accessibility needs.
As before, the workshop will include working in groups of 6-8 people to brainstorm, share, and prioritize ideas around improving culture at UC Berkeley as it relates to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our goal is to leave the meeting with a list of issues and ideas to add to those we collected at the first workshop, and from which we can form working groups to explore these topics in greater depth.
We appreciate any feedback or questions, and look forward to your participation!
