UC Berkeley Women's Initiative for Professional Development (UCB WI)

UC Berkeley Women’s Initiative

Over the past three years, we have had over 150 nominations and applications from UC Berkeley for the University of California Women's Initiative (UC WI), a systemwide talent management program designed to elevate women in leadership, establish a pipeline for advancement, and contribute to women’s and UC's success. 

As a systemwide program, we are allotted a limited number of spots each year (8-12) to UC WI, so we are unable to provide that particular development opportunity to everyone who has shown interest. As such, we have created the UC Berkeley Women’s Initiative, a professional development companion program of the systemwide initiative. UC Berkeley WI is our way of acknowledging your motivation and drive to grow your career - your efforts have not gone unnoticed!

For this invitation-only, Berkeley-specific professional development conference, we have partnered with CORO Northern California, the same organization that facilitates the systemwide program and created an exciting day of development, including a moderated conversation, an inspiring keynote speaker, a CORO-led workshop, and the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals from our campus.

The UC Berkeley Women's Initiative will take place on Friday, October 13, 2023 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m (doors open at 10:00 a.m. for an 11 a.m. start time).

Thank you to our Sponsors!
