were four IC directors shown here (clockwise from top left):

The article begins by reminding readers that "Washington is home
to some of the world's most formidable and talented women: senators,
leading lights in business, medicine, the arts, the law. But their
accomplishments haven't translated to progress for women across
the board. Here are the area's 100 most powerful women; they defy
the common wisdom about what it takes to succeed."
All of the NIH institute directors expressed how privileged they
felt at being included on the list and all welcomed the opportunity
to take advantage of the recognition to shed light on NIH's mission.
The four joined the other honorees along with Washingtonian magazine
staff and guests for a reception in Washington, D.C., on May
Washingtonian, which reports a paid circulation of over
161,000, enjoys an influential readership that includes many national
and local leaders in health, science, government and industry.
