    Topic: Kindness is Not a Sign of Weakness; the importance of being kind

    About our speaker:

    Stephanie Reel was appointed vice provost for information technology and chief information officer for Johns Hopkins in 1998, after serving since 1994 as senior vice president for information services for John Hopkins Medicine. As chief information officer, she oversaw a team of 1,500 IT professionals and led the implementation of the university’s information technology master plan and operational redesign for all aspects of information services including cyber security, network architecture and design, as well as application development for the mission-related activity of the Johns Hopkins Health System and Johns Hopkins University. She also served as an assistant professor in the Division of Health Sciences Informatics and as an associate in the Department of Health Policy and Management.

    In 2019, Stephanie was appointed to the National Institutes of Health Advisory Board for Clinical Research, which serves as an advisory board to NIH Director Francis M. Collins, MD, PhD. She was appointed in 2009 to the Health Information Technology Committee of then-President Barack Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, and she was named one of Maryland’s “Top 100 Women” by the Daily Record in 2008. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and earned her master’s in business administration from Loyola College Baltimore.

    In November 2020, Stephanie assumed her current role as Interim Chief Information Officer at Washington University in St. Louis.

    We have important work to do and sometimes that work seems nearly impossible, but there are a few things we can do to ensure success: work hard, tell the truth, do what you say you will do, always assume positive intent, and be kind to one another.”
