Faculty, staff and students from the University of California gathered on January 25, 2001 on the Clark Kerr Campus to discuss strategies to combat the decline in the rate of hiring of women and minority faculty since the passage of California Prop 209 and UC Regents resolution SP-1.
On this website you will find transcripts of the keynote speeches; a list of conference participants; and suggestions for change. These suggestions were assembled from the speeches, question and answer periods, panel discussions, break-out group sessions, campus reports, and conference feedback forms. Some of these ideas have already been implemented on the Berkeley campus, and others are successfully implemented at other campuses. We include them all for completeness.
