Pickron-Davis Honored as ‘Woman of Achievement’ May 20, 2021
Marcine 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
