Our goal is to help UCOP achieve its vision of becoming an inclusive workplace that embraces the diversity of its employees and fosters an environment where everyone feels respected, appreciated and valued.

Addressing organizational culture is complex and multifaceted. We provide client support and guidance in this area, and will be an integral part of UCOP’s overall strategic framework, organizational structure and everyday activities. Our work focuses on five pillars: employee engagement, workplace culture and inclusion, equity and diverse representation, inclusion and strategic framework, and anti-racism work.
