Staff Appreciation Week: Cal Walks is today!

June 15, 2018

Dear Colleagues,
Today, as we bring this wonderful week of appreciating staff to a close, it’s time to get out your walking shoes! Please join your campus colleagues in our fun group walk. We have UC Walks t-shirts for you (while supplies last), light refreshments, and the chance to win great prizes (you must register and be present to win). Group walks will depart at 12:10pm today from four campus locations to converge at the Campanile, and separate walks are taking place at both Campus Shared Services and Lawrence Hall of Science. We encourage you to commit to a 30-minute walk today!

Also, don’t forget to take advantage of your special offers this week only, from the free coffees to the $5 meals and the Cal gear discounts. Missed the Earthquake Mythbusters Keynote on Tuesday? No problem - we have it for you on-demand so there’s no reason not to see this entertaining and highly informative talk from Dr. Jennifer Strauss of our Berkeley Seismology Lab.

Finally, before I sign off for the week, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the incredible staff volunteers whose collective effort, in addition to help from Facilities Services, Athletics, Cal Dining, SAIT and dedicated planning committees, made Wednesday’s Summerfest possible. Events like this remind me how special our Berkeley campus and community is and how lucky we all are to call each other colleagues. I’d really appreciate it if you could take a minute to answer our 4 question Summerfest survey so we can keep improving it for you.

See you at the walk this lunchtime!


Jo Mackness, Interim AVC-HR
