Sharon

Name:

Sharon Samuel, Researcher V

Why did you choose to serve on the DE&I Staff Radiology Committee?

I decided to serve on this committee because I have seen so many employees move through positions at UAB while not really being connected to UAB and what it has to offer, either because they were never informed or because they felt they didn't fit.

What are your hopes for this committee?

My hope is that we can get all of our employees to see there are opportunities for their growth at UAB not just professionally, but personally as well.

What are your hopes for this committee?

I hope that as a committee, we can work towards becoming a voice for our diverse staff within Radiology by engaging professionally and personally. I hope that we can bring awareness to the development and training that UAB provides for staff.
