Advancing Excellence in Staff Recruitment

UCSF is committed to reflecting the diversity of California's population across all levels of our staff by working to recruit and retain diverse employees, particularly those who have been systematically and historically underrepresented in leadership positions.

To advance these efforts, the Office of Diversity and Outreach, in partnership with Human Resources, has implemented a UCSF-wide process improvement to disrupt unconscious bias present in our hiring and promotions processes. This includes data-driven best practices, standardized work for hiring senior staff and leadership positions (Manager 3 and above), Staff Equity Advisors offering training and consultations, and the requirement that candidates submit a Contributions to Diversity statement as part of their recruitment process.
