More People Giving, People Giving More’ Kickoff Theme as CFC Opens Here Today

The Combined Federal Campaign at NIH opens today (Oct. 5) and ends Oct. 29 with the major emphasis this year on increasing employee participation. The CFC has exceeded its quota at NIH for the past 3 years, but employee participation has dropped steadily—from 71 percent in 1973, to 65 percent in 1974, and 60 percent last year. Full participation is spelled out in this year's theme, "MORE PEOPLE GIVING, and people giving more." CFC officials hold their first strategy meeting. L to r are: Dr. Eldon L. Eagles, deputy
director of N1NCDS, which is responsible for conducting the drive; Dr. Tower; Dr.
Frederickson; Ms. Oliver, and Paul Waugaman, NINCDS executive officer.

NIH Marks Women's History Month

Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed a one-woman play about equal rights pioneer Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

"Critical Thinking." That's how women at NIH change America, according to organizers of the 2005 Women's History Month celebration, who adapted the occasion's national theme "Women Change America" for the NIH audience.

Leading off the celebration, sponsored by NIH's Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management on Mar. 9, Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed the one-woman play, Off the Wall: The Life and Works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Author in 1892 of The Yellow Wallpaper, a semi-autobiographical account of a woman's struggle with depression, Gilman was a pundit and lecturer on equal rights for women.
