This year, the delegation will be examining the following topics:

Succession Planning Workgroup
The University of California attracts and retains a diverse staff workforce. As locations plan for the future, we must develop succession planning strategies to prepare staff and leaders across the UC. With organizational development, talent management, and workforce planning, we are primed to develop succession planning resources and a toolkit to be used across the UC System. The scope of this workgroup is to review succession planning resources, including talent development tools and make recommendations how best to expand, improve, and communicate tools across the system.

Parental Bonding Leave Workgroup

While UC has made efforts to be a family-friendly employer through policies, benefits, resources and services, many staff struggle with understanding the offerings to parents: what is applicable to them and/or where to find information that might be helpful. This workgroup will review what the UC system is currently offering, determine whether and why it is or is not achieving optimal results, and make recommendations for improvement.

Expanded Internal Operations
Expanded workgroup to include sub groups identified below.

  • Website overhaul
  • Prepare a Presidential Scholarship process
  • Budget sustainability plan for CUCSA
  • Strategic Plan

Regular updates and the results of the delegates’ work will be posted on the website so visit often!
