Diversity in Leadership

UCSF is working to achieve demographic diversity in leadership by: expanding the staff equity recruitment model to increase understanding and accountability for hiring diverse teams; building leadership development programs for faculty and staff employees to open paths to leadership for under-represented groups; and reviewing high-profile leadership development opportunities to ensure we are being intentional about creating diverse, inclusive programs. This page highlights current progress and accomplishments.
