As part of its systemic issue analysis work, the Staff Ombuds Office issues reports every two years to give voice to employee concerns and provide recommendations for systemic change that promote Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Justice (DEIBJ) in the workplace. These reports highlight issues that greatly impact employees who may feel marginalized or uncomfortable speaking up for themselves. By analyzing the challenges employees experience, we identify systemic solutions that are vital in achieving Berkeley’s strategic plan -- to provide a healthy campus climate that fosters equity of experience and a place where all members of the campus community feel safe, welcomed, and included.

To request a report in an alternative accessible format or a hard copy, please contact the Staff Ombuds Office at 510-642-7823; 711 CA Relay(link is external). Please note that each person who has an appointment with an Ombudsperson is referred to as a Visitor. If a Visitor has a separate workplace problem involving different parties, they are counted more than once during the fiscal year. If you would like to speak with an Ombudsperson about any systemic issues identified, we are available for consultations and/or presentations for your unit.
