Yes, I believe UCDavis is strong employer for the Sacramento Region for women and provides strong opportunity for women of all education levels to find meaningful work.

    This is dependent on department or division - however, most people working for UC Davis have some flexibility in their schedules and good leave policies. The newest Chancellor is a huge proponent of diversity and creating equitable opportunities for all affinity groups - When speaking of "CEO" below this refers directly to the person in charge in my particular department/school.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. The employer provides strong benefits, flexible work schedules and a deep responsibility to creating effective change, especially in URM and under-served communities. However, strong women with opinions and what is traditionally considered male traits are usually pushed out by males threatened by their strength.

The university has excellent policies for family leave and for nursing/pumping mothers. My department has hired two visibly pregnant women in the year I have been here> They are very interested in keeping talented people and building a positive working environment.

    This is a very large organization and I think family- and women-friendliness is department-specific. The universities policies tend to be family friendly.

Working here is fairly good, time is flexible depending on the individual labs/research groups and the projects and I assume the existence of sexism depends on these too. I had a good overall experience, although faculty in the science and engineering department is still mostly male
