UCSF Anti-racism Town Hall V

Please join UCSF leaders and colleagues for a town hall focused on UCSF’s Anti-racism Initiative. The purpose of the anti-racism town halls is to provide an ongoing forum whereby members of the UCSF community can learn about anti-racism work across the campus and UCSF Health. All members of the UCSF community are encouraged to attend and participate in the discussion. 

Your Voice Leads to Change

Now until Nov. 30, 2021, UCSF faculty, staff, and learners are being surveyed to get perspectives about the campus climate.
Check your inbox for an email from the survey vendor, Emma White, and answer the confidential survey to help us build a climate of greater inclusion and belonging at UCSF. 25 respondents will be randomly selected each week to win a $50 gift card or one of three iPads* at survey close.
*iPad cost or value exceeds non-taxable limit, therefore, the entire amount is subject to withholding as income for tax purposes.
