As an employer that receives federal contract and grants funds, the University of California must maintain an affirmative action plan (PDF), set affirmative action recruitment goals (the Printable Goals Charts), make good faith efforts to reach those goals, and monitor such efforts. Furthermore, the UC Berkeley community is committed to being a leading institution with respect to diversity and inclusion. Hiring managers play in important part in this undertaking.
Hiring managers and others who are involved with recruitment and selections are expected to:
- Be aware of affirmative action recruitment goals for their search.
- Make efforts to attract a large and diverse pool of qualified applicants, particularly inclusive of groups associated with affirmative action recruitment goals.
- Ensure there is no bias in the process. Job qualifications and ranking/selection criteria must be directly related to the position's responsibilities and duties.
- Select the best qualified applicant.
- Document the search properly.
Looking up Affirmative Action Recruitment Goals
- When you have a job opening, the Affirmative Action (AA) Goals will automatically appear on the TAM job opening screen and the job posting screen. Whenever you wish to review your department's AA Goals, visit the AA Jobs Groups (PDF) to find all job titles listed by job group. You may also search by alphabetical listing (PDF) or by job code (PDF).
- If you don't know your control unit affiliation, consult your departmental HR manager. Alternatively, you can look it up in the Org Tree worksheet (Excel): go to the "Org Tree" tab, search for your department, and find the "AA Reporting Unit" associated with your department. Note: Control units with fewer than 500 employees (Chancellor's Unit, Equity & Inclusion, and University Relations) should use campus goals.
- Open the Affirmative Action Recruitment Goals chart for your control unit (see Printable Goals Charts, above). Find the job group number in the left hand column of the chart. If all boxes are blank, there are no goals.
- A percentage with yellow shading indicates control unit recruitment goal(s). A percentage with blue shading indicates recruitment goal(s) for the campus. Control unit goals take precedence over campus goals. Affirmative action recruitment goals are a target, not a quota.
