My UC Career Online Career Development Tool

Staff Education & Development and Health Human Resources Learning & Organization Effectiveness Team have collaborated to launch the My UC Career online career development tool. In addition to our local programs and resources, this is a systemwide tool available to all University of California (UC) employees. Career development continues to be a focus area across all UC locations, and the portal helps employees to grow and advance their UC careers.

The My UC Career portal provides access to job openings at all UC locations via the Systemwide Job Board, as well as resources and tools to create and refine resumes, write cover letters, identify strengths, practice interviewing and find professional networking opportunities.

Addition to UC People Management Series and Certificate (effective February 15, 2018)

We are pleased to share with you about the newest course additions to the UC People Management Series and Certificate - the UC Managing Implicit Bias Series.

Launched in early 2017, the UC Systemwide People Management Series and Certificate is a program for all People Managers consisting of Core and Elective Courses, which include local and systemwide programs and eCourses, as well as in-person learning experiences. The certificate, recommended for all People Managers and those aspiring to a career in people management, builds on coursework that may have already been completed. The following topics are included in the People Management Series and Certificate: Performance Management, Managing Implicit Bias, Managing People, Administration & Operations, Change Management and Communications.

New for 2018 is the addition of the UC Managing Implicit Bias Series, which is made up of six self-paced, online interactive courses, ranging between 15-20 minutes each in length. The Series is designed to increase awareness of implicit bias, reduce its impact at the University, and further reinforce the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

  1. What is Implicit Bias?
  2. The Impact of Implicit Bias
  3. Managing the Influence of Implicit Bias: Awareness
  4. Common Forms of Bias
  5. Managing the Impact of Implicit Bias: Mindfulness and Conscious De-biasing
  6. Managing Implicit Bias in the Hiring Process

These courses can be completed individually or together as a series to earn the UC Managing Implicit Bias Certificate. As a UC People Manager, being aware of implicit bias and how it impacts the way we work and interact with others is especially important. Therefore, this series is now a part of the 2018 UC People Management Series and Certificate core requirements.

If you are a formally designated supervisor/manager, completing the 2018 UC People Management Series and Certificate will make you eligible to attend the UC People Management Conference held later this year.
