UCSC Chancellor Cindy Larive will be discussing recent AAUW research that found that the University of California Santa Cruz was ranked No. 1 in the nation among top research universities for racial and gender diversity in leadership. They were judged against a rigorous set of criteria. She will speak about the very deliberate steps the university took to increase its diversity. Additionally, she has personally mentored 30 doctoral and masters students, and she has been active in encouraging the participation and success of women and other underrepresented groups in the STEM fields.
