  • CCC LGBTQ+ Summit — A Virtual Event (4-5 May 22)
    All day
    May 5, 2022-May 5, 2022

    This conference is a space for students, faculty, classified professionals, and administrators. In previous years at least half of our attendees were students.

    The CCC LGBTQ+ Summit 2022 is an opportunity to collaborate with members of the California Community College campuses at all levels. We will learn from each other’s innovative and successful ideas that will transform campuses so that we better serve and affirm LGBTQ+ students.

    The conference is focused on improving not only individual community college campuses but also encouraging changes at the structural level.

  • Deputy Chancellor Dr. Daisy Gonzales To Speak at CCC LGBTQ+ Summit
    All day
    May 5, 2022

    We are excited to announce that Dr. Daisy Gonzales, Deputy Chancellor of the California Community Colleges, will serve as the 2nd keynote speaker that will open up the second day of the Summit (May 5th)!

    Below is a a little about Dr. Gonzales:
    Born into an immigrant family in Southern California, Deputy Chancellor Daisy Gonzales spent much of her formative years in Los Angeles’ foster care system. Witnessing firsthand the numerous challenges and inequities students face, she quickly took on leadership roles in student government to advocate for student voices. After completing a bachelor’s degree in public policy from Mills College, Gonzales completed a master’s degree and PhD. in sociology from UC Santa Barbara.
    Gonzales began her career in education as a dual-immersion third-grade teacher before taking on a career in fiscal policy and legislation. Gonzales served as a budget consultant for the California State Assembly Budget Committee, and was the principal consultant for the Assembly Appropriations Committee and Associate Director of Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE).
    Breaking barriers for women of color, as both the first Latina to serve as Deputy Chancellor and the first to take on the role of acting chancellor, Gonzales leads the country’s largest higher education system, driving transformational change to achieve the goals of the system’s Vision for Success. Having overseen operations and strategic policy within the California Community Colleges, her experience as a leader and unapologetic anti-racist mindset, uniquely qualify Gonzales to lead the California Community Colleges.
    Gonzales steers continuous efforts to highlight the work of equity and to center student success, guiding this through the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) workgroup. The DEI workgroup has strategically organized transformational change across the system.
