Learn more about diversity, equity and inclusion efforts at California community colleges, and how one former foster youth made it to the leadership team of our 115-college system! California community colleges Deputy Chancellor Dr. Daisy Gonzales joins us on Monday, April 26 at 12pm for a free virtual talk about how California is addressing systemic racism and equity issues on all its campuses. She'll also share her personal story as a former foster youth and one of the first college students in her family.
Dr. Gonzales is a role model for the next generation of California’s higher education professionals, and Latina leaders in particular. As deputy chancellor, Dr. Gonzales is responsible for coordinating the divisions of Educational Services and Support, Student, Workforce and Economic Development, the Institutional Effectiveness Partnership Initiative (IEPI) and Digital Innovation and Infrastructure (DII).
Her primary duties, however, involve implementing and tracking the commitments and goals outlined in California Community Colleges’ Vision for Success that seeks to demolish achievement gaps, boost transfers to University of California and California State University campuses and provide Californians with the necessary job skills to find good-paying careers.
