WiT@UCI: Allyship that makes an impact: How to support women in IT

If you have ever thought, "I care about creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace, but what can I do to help?”, you’re not alone. Being a better ally for underrepresented colleagues is unfamiliar territory for many of us, but it’s an essential component of making meaningful change for women in the workplace.

In this one-hour virtual event, author and former tech executive Karen Catlin will begin by delivering a keynote drawing from her book, Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces (link opens in a new window).

Following the presentation, Ms. Catlin will be joined by Associate Professor of Teaching in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, Jennifer Wong-Ma and Assistant Dean in the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, Jason Valdry, for a fireside chat about the challenges women and other underrepresented employees face on our campus, and practical ways that every individual can take action as an ally. Sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Data and Information Technology, Tom Andriola, and facilitated by the founder of Women in Tech at UCI, Shohreh Bozorgmehri, this event aims to empower anyone become a better ally to their underrepresented co-workers and peers.

Come discover how you can make a real difference for your colleagues and your workplace with the Better Allies™ approach.

Everyone, regardless of gender, is encouraged to join this webinar to learn more. Please consider inviting male and male-identifying colleagues to attend with you.

Sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Data and Information Technology.
