Hidden Figures tribute set for Nov. 4Oct. 24, 2019, 9:28 AM
On Monday, Nov. 4, the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Office for Diversity Affairs will present the third annual “Hidden VUMC Figures” event — a tribute to employees who have made significant long-term contributions to the Medical Center, often behind the scenes.
The event will be held at noon in 208 Light Hall and is open to all Medical Center employees.
“We are trying to work on building a culture and environment around understanding the value of diversity and inclusion at Vanderbilt,” said André Churchwell, MD, Chief Diversity Officer for VUMC.
“It is clear that symbols and those who you honor reflect your value system. We are committed to building a culture that respects and values all who work at VUMC. This program is just one ‘brick’ in the metaphorical building of VUMC diversity and inclusion that we are constructing.”
The four honorees are Randy Bates, VUMC Health IT; William Gunter, Anatomy; John Wiley, Biochemistry, Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology; and Marion Wiley, Nursing.
