Office of Workplace Inclusion and Belonging
Anti-Racism Task Force
UCOP is committed to being consistently fair, equitable and anti-racist in its behaviors, policies, practices and structures.
In June 2020, President Emerita Janet Napolitano convened the UCOP Anti-Racism Task Force. The Task Force was charged with considering how best to advance the Office of the President at all of its locations toward the full embodiment of its values so that it is consistently fair, equitable and anti-racist in its behaviors, policies, practices and structures.
Recommendations were presented by the Anti-Racism Task Force to President Michael V. Drake in December 2020 and were formally approved by March 2021. The Task Force proposed a five-year implementation strategy to ensure long-term, sustainable change that fosters a more inclusive workplace.
