We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for a professional development opportunity: the Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program.

This free professional development and training opportunity is open to all UCSF staff. The curriculum focuses on exploring foundational concepts essential to enhancing an inclusive work environment, through lecture, experiential activities, and independent learning activities.

The application process primarily consists of a statement of interest.  A limited number of applicants will be selected. The Winter 2018 program will be held at Parnassus approximately every-other Tuesday beginning in January, ending with a graduation celebration in May. 

We encourage multiple applicants from a department or unit to develop further capacity within a unit. Please consider applying and or encouraging your staff to apply. 

Interested staff members who previously applied, and were not selected, should submit a new application if they would like to be considered.  Successful applicants in the last round addressed each of the personal statement questions, including how they will incorporate diversity and inclusion work into their current role, can speak to their career goals at UCSF, and express an interest in bringing their learning back to their unit/dept.

The application period is open from October 19 through December 12, 2017.   For more information, please contact [email protected]
