Exploring the Relationship between Stereotype Threat and an Inclusive Environment- October 26th

  • This presentation should benefit educators, students and staff interested in deepening their understanding of the experiences of health professions students related to stereotype threat. Our research findings suggest that faculty and peers have a big impact (positive or negative) on the climate of inclusivity as experienced by underrepresented students. Through this presentation and discussion we will explore inter-relational best practices that foster inclusion and student success.

Improving Equity, Diversity, and Workplace Climate Among Faculty at UC Davis- December 1st

  • This presentation will provide an overview of the two main activities of the Inclusive Campus Climate Initiative of the Advance Program: The STEAD workshops for members of faculty recruitment committees and the COACHE faculty job satisfaction survey. These activities aim to increase equity and diversity in faculty recruitment and to assess (and thereby help to improve) faculty members’ satisfaction with the many aspects of their work at UC Davis. The goals, approach, and outcomes of each effort will be presented and offered for discussion.

Mentorship: Its Role and Importance for Latinas in STEM- February 6th  

  • Our interviews with Latina President Postdoctoral Fellows and other STEM scholars yielded powerful narratives of the importance of mentorship within and outside the academic context for the development of a scientist identity and academic success.  This presentation will discuss our preliminary analysis of these findings.

Institutionalizing Inclusion:  Policies and Practices that Sustain and Enable Inclusive Climates- April 6th

  • The policy and practices initiative has been reviewing polices as well as practices related to faculty recruitment, advancement and retention with the goal of breaking down barriers to inclusion in the faculty ranks. Some suggested changes have already been implemented and others will be presented in our final report to the campus. Come to the cafecito to discuss the draft of the findings and recommendations of this final report.

Capital Resource Network-Helping to Attract and Retain the Best and the Brightest- June 1st

  • The Capital Resource Network is a program created at UC Davis that serves as a collaborative regional resource to recruit and retain highly competitive, educated, skilled and diverse talent, both academic and staff appointees.  The fee-for-service program uses a proactive and intentional approach to welcome, introduce, and integrate top talent and their families to the region. Seeking to attract and retain the best and the brightest, the program’s dual career support efforts strategically recognize the importance of employment opportunities for the accompanying spouse or partner, who is critical to the decision-making process.
