People Leader Network

Launched by Campus Human Resources, the People Leader Network is a community of UC San Diego managers and supervisors designed to provide people leaders with the tools they need to foster a healthy and successful working environment.

The People Leader Network aims to:

  • Support people leaders with the resources they need to become better managers
  • Create a direct line of communication between managers and HR to ensure they have the resources they need when they need them
  • Provide managers and supervisors with professional development and training opportunities
  • Create a sense of comradery by connecting managers throughout campus with each other


People Leader Summit

The People Leader Network meets once a quarter for its centerpiece event, the People Leader Summit - an online, interactive session featuring a wealth of necessary tools for people with teams to thrive as People Leaders.

The summit features news and updates; a real-time Q&A where Campus Chief Human Resources Officer Terri Winbush and many others answer questions; moderated discussion groups; and more.
