Ché L. Abram

Chief of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

Schedule a 1:1 Meeting

A Berkeley Public Health strategy is to cultivate arc-bending via social impact: advancing anti-racism, diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice, strengthening community engagement, and building an ecosystem for social impact.

There are many facets to my role that aid in our arc-bending strategy: leadership support for the DREAM Office; development, implementation and assessment of data that improve teaching and learning, belonging, infrastructure, and social impact; addressing experiences of bias and harm; partnering to facilitate educational and community building opportunities; support enhancements to curriculum; and much, much more.

My work is centered in knowledge, empathy, practice, vision, and holistic wellness, thereby, engaging with our race and equity frameworks, programming, and practices, we are guided to strengthen relationships with the self, community, and our environment. Leading us to cultivate a restorative environment that promotes healing from adversity and foster communities centered in accountability.
