On February 18, the Cal Alumni Association and Cal Athletics partnered to present their first-ever virtual Cal Women’s Basketball Hoops Party and Black History Month celebration. In addition to special guests and a visit from the Cal Band, the program spotlighted remarks from Coach Charmin Smith and a conversation between Cal Basketball and WNBA alum Talia Caldwell ’13 and Dr. Ty Douglas, Cal Athletics’ new Associate Athletic Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. In light of worldwide demonstrations against systemic racism and a global pandemic, Ty, Talia, and Charmin shared stories of their respective journeys to Cal and their reflections on 2020 and the year’s challenges.
Join your blue and gold family—from wherever you are—for an engaging hour of connection and important conversations.
