OD EEO Advisory Committee Embarks on Another Year
The Office of the Director's equal employment opportunity advisory committee (OD EEOAC) has developed several timely initiatives for the year that were approved by NIH deputy director Dr. Ruth Kirschstein.

The employee performance and work ethic subcommittee will seek to inform and educate OD employees at all levels about human resource and EEO policies and to infuse a positive and fair work ethic within the OD community.
The communications/marketing subcommittee will identify programs that enhance the quality of work life and provide this information to managers and employees. Their plan will include developing seminars and/or reports to distribute their findings.
The purpose of the OD EEOAC is to advise the deputy director on implementing and maintaining an equal employment opportunity/affirmative employment program in OD. Committee objectives are to:
Members of the OD EEOAC represent a cross section of employees in all divisions, series and grades. OD employees are encouraged to discuss any suggestions with their committee representative.
