Career, Training Expo Draws Hundreds
Hundreds of employees attended a career development and training expo on June 26. The Office of the Director's Equal Employment Opportunity advisory committee organized the event to provide employees with information on programs offered within the NIH community. The event gave employees an opportunity to meet with representatives of these programs and receive advice and handouts.
The expo began with words of encouragement and support from Dr. Ruth Kirschstein, NIH acting director; Dr. Yvonne Maddox, NIH acting deputy director; and Charles Leasure, NIH acting executive officer. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the exhibit area followed. Framed event posters were presented to Steve Benowitz, director of the Office Human Resource Management, and to Dr. Jack Whitescarver, acting director of the Office of AIDS Research, for their assistance and sponsorship of the event.
Exhibit subjects at the expo included the Human Resource Development Division of OHRM, FAES, NIH Office of Education, CSR Intern Program, NIH Work and Family Life Center, Center for Information Technology training, National Library of Medicine rotation program, and representatives from NIH predoctoral fellowship awards.
