Supervising for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At UC Davis, we strive to attract, select, retain and develop a diverse and talented workforce who will contribute to the university's mission and vision. Supervisors play a critical role supporting UC Davis’ commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive community for all staff. Supervisors who embed diversity and equity into their management and embrace the value of different perspectives foster more creative, inclusive and productive teams.

Trainings and Resources

In order to lead a diverse workforce, supervisors are encouraged to support their own development, as well as the development growth of their staff. UC Davis offers a variety of diversity trainings, services, and resource groups for staff.
