Membership

Home » About » Membership

Adopted August 12, 2019 / Updated May 6, 2022

UC WIT is composed of volunteers from all UC locations (campus and health systems), representing various departments and positions within the technology function. The UC WIT membership is composed of up to four representatives from each location-based committee (four from each campus, four from each health system, and four from each of the other UC locations). If a location does not have a local WIT committee, up to four volunteers from that location may serve on the UC WIT.

In our UC Women in Tech committee, we’ve adopted a decentralized approach to the management of nominees and the term of memberships, entrusting each campus with the responsibility of identifying and proposing candidates who demonstrate dedication and innovation in the field of technology. This campus-level nomination process allows us to harness the unique strengths and talents present in diverse locations.

Member Responsibilities


  • The UC WIT is composed of volunteers from all UC locations, representing various departments and positions within the technology function.
  • The UC WIT membership is composed of up to four representatives from each location-based committee (four from each campus, four from each health system, and four from each of the other UC locations). If a location does not have a local WIT committee, up to four volunteers from that location may serve on the UC WIT.
  • Each member is responsible for sharing information between the location-based and systemwide committees.
  • Each member agrees to represent their UC location.
  • Each member agrees to attend the monthly meeting, and to let the chair know 24 hours in advance if they cannot make it, and if this becomes a regular occurrence, to consider giving their seat to another person from their location. Proxy attendance not permitted.
  • Each member will engage in committee discussions, assume note-taking duties when it’s their turn, and will, as necessary, participate in any vote put before the committee.
  • If a member is not able to meet these responsibilities, they will consider handing their seat to another person from their location.
  • Each member agrees to maintain a professional and cordial environment in all settings and locations in which UC WIT work and activities are conducted. Each member participates in upholding the committee’s commitment to the principles of diversity, inclusion, integrity, civility, and respect for others and their opinions and ideas.

Nomination


Use the membership form for nominating individuals or self-nominating for membership on the UC Women in Tech committee. It’s important to note that each campus is allocated a maximum of four members. If all positions are currently filled, nominees will be contacted and given the opportunity to serve as volunteers within their local chapter until a spot becomes available for them to rotate onto full membership. Volunteers are invited to UC WIT committee meetings as needed, based on their role but not required to attend monthly meetings. Nominations submitted through this form will be redirected to the respective campus representatives for careful consideration and assessment. We appreciate your engagement in this process and your dedication to contributing to the UC Women in Tech community.
