Pickron-Davis Mentors Future Women Leaders

March 7, 2022

Marcine Pickron-Davis, PhDJoining more than 30 women leaders from around the region on February 28, Marcine Pickron-Davis, PhD, chief diversity and community relations officer at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), shared advice with burgeoning leaders as part of the Philadelphia Business Journal's Bizwomen Mentoring Monday.

The annual program brings together mentors and mentees in a relaxed, but fast-paced virtual environment. Mentors for this session were selected by the The Forum of Executive Women, a network of more than 500 women leaders in the Greater Philadelphia Region, from a broad cross section of industries and included CEOs, managing directors, presidents and other women leaders.

Reflecting on the experience, Dr. Pickron-Davis shared, “It was a pleasure to support Mentoring Monday's mission to build connections and broaden the network of emerging female leaders and entrepreneurs.”

Dr. Pickron-Davis has a deep appreciation for the important role mentors can play early in a career.

“I appreciate the mentors who saw my potential and inspired me to find my purpose,” she said. “Relationships with mentors matter and have the potential to make a significant difference in a mentee's professional journey.”

At PCOM, Dr. Pickron-Davis Chair's the President's Council on Equity, Inclusion and Justice, charged with identifying strategic priorities and initiatives that align with the PCOM 2025 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan. The Council is made up of work groups representing students, faculty, and staff from PCOM, PCOM Georgia and PCOM South Georgia.

As a leader, Dr. Pickron-Davis is a strong advocate for civic engagement, currently serving on the Boards of Darlington Arts Center, Together for West Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development and Methodist-Inglis Gardens Collaborative. She is also Chair of the Pennsylvania Diversity Council and Vice-Chair of Blacks Educating Blacks About Sexual Health Issues (BEBASHI). She recently served as co-chair of the inaugural Council on Diversity and Equity for the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.

The recipient of numerous awards and honors, Dr. Pickron-Davis was most recently named by the Philadelphia Tribune as a “Woman of Achievement“ and honored by the National Diversity Council as an LGBTQ+ Ally.
