On Feb. 24, UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D., held his first-ever systemwide UC Town Hall for all UC staff.

In conversation with Priya Lakireddy and Jo Mackness — staff advisor and staff advisor-designate to the UC Regents — President Drake answered questions from UC staff. The substantive conversation covered many areas of interest for the UC staff community. Some of the many topics they discussed were:

  • Staff pay raises
  • Workforce diversity
  • Hybrid work
  • Community safety
  • Affirmative action

More than 2,500 staff members tuned in to the event live, and thousands more have since streamed the recorded session. You can watch the UC Town Hall online below or stream it from YouTube here.
