UC Davis is committed to making a best faith effort to ensure we generate a diverse & talented applicant pool for all of our recruitments.
This commitment is guided by an understanding that a diverse workforce is necessary to promote innovation, creativity, and inclusive excellence. Additionally, our workforce should reflect the students, patients, and communities we serve. Affirmative Action goals are one way we identify positions where we need to cast a wide net to attract a diverse pool. Affirmative Action goals are not quotas. Rather, the University sets affirmative action goals with the expectation that hiring managers conduct inclusive recruitment when there is a job opening. It is the University's policy to select the best qualified person for the job and to document recruitment/selection efforts.
Our affirmative action goals are also driven by our status as an employer that receives federal contract and grant funds. As such, we are obligated to maintain an affirmative action plan and stay in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations. Consistent with these legal requirements, UC Davis takes affirmative actions to address underutilization in our workforce for women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
