Marcine Pickron-Davis, PhDMarcine Pickron-Davis, PhD, chief diversity and community relations officer at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), was honored recently as one of the Philadelphia Tribune’s 2021 Women of Achievement and featured in the September edition of Tribune Magazine. The special edition magazine recognizes African-American women who have shown the capacity for excellence and immense value to their respective organizations.

“It’s truly an honor to be selected for this award, particularly to be nominated by my colleagues at PCOM, but also because the work we’re doing is so important,” said Pickron-Davis. “I am humbled to be included among such a distinguished group of women and congratulate all of this year’s honorees.”

The annual program, described as a “celebration of African-American women who have made great achievements in their chosen fields and have made a substantive impact to the success of their companies and organizations they represent,” this year honored 17 women from a broad range of industries, including Dr. Ala Stanford, founder and director of the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium.

“The Philadelphia Tribune is once again pleased to recognize women who have made significant contributions not only to their respective organizations but also to their communities for which they serve,” said Philadelphia Tribune President and CEO Robert W. Bogle in a recorded video for the program. 

Dr. Pickron-Davis was nominated for this award by her colleagues at PCOM, specifically for her work advancing diversity and inclusion and her co-leadership of the President’s Community Wellness Initiative (CWI), an initiative to support existing projects and foster cross-campus collaboration to create, plan, and execute new opportunities to serve the communities of all three PCOM locations.
