This daylong event (one in the north and one in the south) features presenters from the Chancellor’s office and the Association of Chief Human Resources Officers; breakouts on many topics related to encouraging diversity and cultural competency among faculty; and a dynamic presentation from Dr. Veronica Neal, DeAnza College Equity Coordinator.
