Register for the panel discussion “How to Break Down Barriers to Privacy Careers for Underrepresented Populations,” hosted by the UC Berkeley Privacy Office. This virtual event will take place on January 26, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.
The panel will address the lack of diversity in the privacy field and will discuss how to increase opportunities for graduates and young professionals of color. While the privacy field has grown exponentially over the past decade and career opportunities for privacy specialists are booming, it is still hard for young professionals of color to get a foot in the door to gain experience in the field. Panelists will describe their experiences in the field and will discuss how current privacy officials can make the field more accessible to underrepresented populations.
Panelists will include privacy officials and experts from across California, including:
- Cheryl Washington, CISO, UC Davis (and former Privacy Officer at UCOP)
- Pegah Parsi, Chief Privacy Officer, UC San Diego
- Thea Bullock, Chief Privacy Officer, UC Irvine
- Liz Eraker Palley, Senior Privacy Counsel, Google
An introduction will be provided by Vice President for Information Technology and UC CIO Van Williams
