Organizational Effectiveness & Development recently hosted the 2022 UCLA Administration Leadership Forum at the Luskin Conference Center. More than 300 managers and supervisors across Administration attended to discuss the opportunities and challenges impacting the organization.

The morning session also featured recorded remarks from Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Darnell Hunt, and Chancellor Gene Block addressed the afternoon session in person.
Professor Heather Caruso from the UCLA Anderson School of Management spoke about encouraging inclusivity to ensure all staff feel a sense of belonging. Attendees also participated in breakout sessions with members of the Administration Leadership Team to discuss creating an agile organization and how to strengthen their response to change.
Administrative Vice Chancellor Beck closed the forum by recognizing project teams from Leadership 20XX, a program that strengthens the talent pipeline by growing critical leadership skills and capabilities within UCLA Administration.
