Embracing Diversity, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), and Affirmative Action (AA) are three components of UC Berkeley's work toward creating Equity in the Workplace for its employees. Equity in the Workplace is characterized by:

  • A diverse productive workforce
  • A more equitable and accessible work environment
  • An inclusive environment where all employees are valued
  • A work environment free from discrimination
  • A level playing field for employee success

What Are Diversity, Equal Employment Opportunity, and Affirmative Action?

Academic Affirmative Action Plan

The UC Berkeley Academic Affirmative Action Plan serves as a working document that outlines UC Berkeley's policies, responsibilities, priorities and programs for ensuring equal employment opportunity and affirmative action.

As an employer that receives federal contract and grants funds, the University of California must maintain an affirmative action plan. The plan is evaluated, monitored, and updated annually.
