Change begins with us

Welcome to the new UCSC Silicon Valley Extension Diversity Equity Inclusion series where we invite you to consider new ways of listening, seeing, and evaluating the roles and identities we live in today's society and help you develop practical tools to navigate a more just society.

Our curriculum is created to build awareness and develop DEI leadership in the classroom and in larger organizations and institutions to promote:

  • Greater understanding
    Awareness of the many intersecting identities and roles we have in diversity, equity and inclusion work.
  • Wiser interactions
    Promoting equity, inclusion, and social justice in our workplaces, communities, and beyond.
  • Effective advocacy
    Moving beyond understanding and empathy toward allyship and action.
