119: Professional & Continuing Ed...and DEI - with Dr. Mayen B. Udoetuk, Director, Program and Partner Development at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension

In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we talk Dr. Mayen B. Udoetuk, Director, Program and Partner Development at UCSC Silicon Valley Extension. Mayen literally job crafted her role to be involved with diversity, equity, and inclusion in her work of extending UCSC SVE in the credit and non-credit space.  She champions the role of professional and continuing education for adult learners by designing relevant curriculum and through extending diversity in advisory boards so those that are informing the programs are also reflective of the overall population.  More diverse voices equal higher success rates for students.  

Dr. Mayen Udoetuk is the Director of Program and Partner Development at the UCSC Silicon Valley Extension. Currently, she is developing programs and industry partnerships intended to resolve highly complex training issues among professionals in Engineering and Technology, Business and Management, BioScience, Education, and Design. Her objective is to assist these industries with closing skills gaps while reducing diversity, equity, and inclusion disparities.
