New Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Law
Effective January 1, 2006, a new California law (AB1825) requires two hours of mandatory sexual harassment prevention education for all supervisory employees.  OEOD coordinated compliance with this new requirement by offering both live and on-line training programs.  By the end of the fiscal year, nearly 2000 faculty and staff had met the requirements of the new law, a 92% completion rate.  

Diversity Outreach
In addition to the many diversity programs offered by OEOD, promotion and support of diversity programming and planning across the UCI community included:
  • Sponsorship of five participants to attend the Human Relations Institute 101, a five-day course that focused on human relations and leadership in a multicultural community, with an emphasis on Orange County and building an inclusive community.  
  • Partnering with the Disability Services Center for a speaker for Disability Awareness Week 2005:  Rachel Simon, author of Riding the Bus with my Sister. 
Advertising
In order to reach an even wider audience of potential applicants, OEOD posted UCI academic job openings on two online job boards:
  • InsideHigherEd.com
  • SoCalHERC.org

To assist all departments in increasing visibility and outreach in the recruitment of faculty and staff, OEOD contracted on a pilot basis in 2006 with InsideHigherEd.com, a website developed by former editors of the Chronicle of Higher Education, to allow unlimited job postings on IHE’s site.  All academic positions that are posted on UCI’s Academic Employment web page are automatically posted on InsideHigherEd.com.  Staff positions can also be posted on the site by Human Resources or directly by a department.  For an account on IHE, contact OEOD. 

UCI is a member of the Southern California Higher Education Recruitment Consortium.  The focus of the consortium is to provide a centralized resource for those interested in higher education positions in Southern California, particularly career partners of faculty recruited into the area.  As a member, UCI can upload any and all faculty and staff job postings on the SoCal HERC site.  OEOD uploads all academic recruitment postings to SoCalHERC.org on a weekly basis. 

OEOD also continued its employment advertising campaign in diversity-related publications focused on higher education.
