2020 has been a year marked by great loss due to the pandemic — thousands of jobs and more than 270,000 lives in the United States alone. Behind the numbers there is a real human impact. We acknowledge that this time of year is made more difficult as we prepare to celebrate the holiday season.
In 2021 we will be producing an "In Memoriam" issue of The Diversity Digest to celebrate those in our community that we have lost. We hope you will consider submitting a memory or story of your loved one that we may include in our community celebration of life.
Without the opportunity to gather in person at this time, this week's offerings create opportunities for you to engage in self care and mental wellness.
In the new year, we would like to celebrate the lives of those we lost in 2020. If you would like to celebrate the life of a loved one with us please submit their name and relation to you, along with a story or memory (you may include a photo), to firstname.lastname@example.org so they may be included in our future "In Memoriam" issue of The Diversity Digest.
On Dec. 10, bond together virtually with UCLA Latino Alumni Association for an
Ugly Sweater Soirée at 6 p.m. (PST) followed by UCLA Muslim Alumni Association's
Virtual Coffee Chat at 7 p.m. (PST).
On Dec. 9 at 6 p.m., join Cheryl Arutt '93, Psy.D., for Master Your Mindset and Thrive, and learn to become more present and emotionally courageous, as you prepare for the new year.
