Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Council appointed

VP Glenda Humiston has appointed 11 ANR people to an initial two-year term as founding members of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Council for UC Agriculture and Natural Resources. This appointment is effective retroactively from Nov. 1, 2020, through Oct. 31, 2022. 

In a Jan. 29 ANR Update, Humiston wrote:

I am convening this advisory council to support DEI efforts that UC ANR staff and academics have undertaken to improve working environments within UC ANR, as well as to improve quality of life for marginalized populations living in the state of California. Diversity is one of our core values and developing an equitable and inclusive society is one of our public values. This Council is a commitment by UC ANR leadership to take division-wide action on the existence and impact of longstanding discrimination within our Division, as well as in our efforts throughout the state.

I am asking the founding members to recommend a formal charter to document the objectives, organization and functions of the council. While the initial appointment for all founding members is two years, the intent is for members to have staggered appointments to allow for turnover and continuity. I ask that the Council work to develop the Charter and an agenda for an initial meeting with myself, AVP Powers and AVP Tran by June 30, 2021. 

Council members include

  • Elaine Lander
  • Esther Mosase
  • Fadzayi Mashiri
  • Gail Feenstra
  • Katherine Soule
  • Keith Nathaniel
  • Laura Snell
  • LeChé McGill
  • Mohammed Yagmour
  • Ricardo Vela
  • Ron Walker
