Nominations sought for upcoming Hidden VUMC Figures event

Jul. 19, 2018, 9:21 AM

On Oct. 29, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and Vanderbilt University Medical Center Human Resources will present the second Hidden VUMC Figures event in 208 Light Hall.

This event supports the belief that it is imperative to acknowledge all members of this large community who have helped advance the Medical Center to its internationally recognized status. As in last year’s inaugural event, attendance is welcomed from all parts of the Medical Center.

This year organizers are soliciting nominations from the entire VUMC community. The nomination period is open until Aug. 13. The chosen employee honorees must have contributed in a substantive manner to the success of the Medical Center. In some cases, our notable awardees were the first in their area, or contributed in some innovative or groundbreaking manner in their service to the Medical Center.

Please email nominations by completing 2018 Hidden VUMC Figures Nomination form. You will be asked to include the person’s name, years of service (if known), and a short description of his or her job and important contributions.

Organizers will collect all the names and based on the number of responses for a single person and/or their seminal contribution to the Medical Center, will determine this year’s honorees.
