Mangione, CTSI program leader for the Workforce Development Program, was congratulated by many colleagues in the video including CTSI leaders, Drs. Alejandra Casillas and Keith Norris.
UCLA's annual Cultural North Star Award is designed to recognize an individual who has gone above and beyond to exemplify DGSOM’s Cultural North Star values in their work, actions or interactions.
This year, there were 43 worthy and phenomenal nominees. UCLA thanked all of the nominators for taking the time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of so many incredible members of our school. A panel of nine reviewers made up of Cultural North Star Steering Committee members and Cultural North Star Ambassadors scored all 43 nominees based on a Cultural North Star rubric. As always, the nominations were blinded for review, meaning that identifying characteristics–such as names and pronouns–were redacted. Dr. Mangione’s nomination received the highest cumulative score.
