2020 Systemwide UC Women's Initiative for Professional Development


Dear Colleagues:

We are pleased to request your nominations for the 2020 Systemwide UC Women's Initiative (UC WI) for Professional Development.

Sponsored by the Systemwide Advisory Committee on the Status of Women (SACSW) and the UC Office of the President, UC WI is an experiential professional development program for women who have demonstrated the potential to advance in their careers at the University. This program was very well received last year, and we encourage you to consider this valuable opportunity for mid-career women, including staff and faculty/academic personnel.

This nomination process covers two regional cohorts that are offered in Southern California during January - March and April – June of 2020. Each cohort will include 30 participants. The cost to participate is $1,925, which covers all program materials and facilitation fees. Travel and other expenses are the responsibility of the individual participant’s department. In the future, the program timeline will align with our academic/fiscal year.

Please submit your nominations using the online nomination form for the 2020 UC WI.

The deadline for nominating candidates is October 4, 2019.

For more information about the program, you may visit the UC Women’s Initiative for Professional Development website or contact Rejeana Mathis ( in Campus Human Resources.
