Whitney Gaskins, PhD, assistant dean for inclusive excellence and community engagement
for the University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science, was one of seven African-American leaders recently recognized in the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber's new campaign for Black History Month, titled "We are Making Black History."
Gaskins, who holds three UC degrees (including a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering/engineering education), is one of many local leaders who are "quietly achieving great success while living and working in Greater Cincinnati."
"Much of our African-American talent has gone unrecognized," says Danielle Wilson, the chamber's talent attraction impact leader. "We need to tell more stories and set a new narrative for what Cincinnati can offer African-American talent."
Gaskins' achievements were highlighted in a story in The Cincinnati Enquirer.
