SEATTLE - On Thursday, March 18, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) presented the Ruth Green Award to Christine R. Charbonneau, President/CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGNW). The award is given to a Planned Parenthood affiliate chief executive chosen by her or his peers for outstanding leadership with board volunteers in planning, public affairs, and fundraising. It is one of the highest honors given to Planned Parenthood Affiliate CEOs for their work in carrying out the mission of Planned Parenthood. The award was presented at PPFA's National Conference Gala held in metropolitan Washington, DC, and celebrated by over 1,000 Planned Parenthood leaders who work every day to improve the health and lives of women across the nation. "Chris Charbonneau is a true visionary among health care providers," said PPFA President Cecile Richards. "Whether she is leading a merger or creating a business model to ensure low-cost contraceptives for hundreds of thousands American women, Chris has an uncanny ability to innovate and create stability for her organization at the same time. Chris's leadership has been instrumental in putting Planned Parenthood in a better position to deliver more health care to more people in more places." The Ruth Green Award was established in 1981 to honor a remarkable and talented CEO who has served Planned Parenthood as a volunteer, an executive director and as an ambassador-at-large for the mission of Planned Parenthood. "Chris Charbonneau is richly deserving of this award and the recognition for a career, and a life, that is committed to the mission of Planned Parenthood," said Han Nachtrieb, PPGNW Board Chair. "Through her vision, PPGNW is launching a project to serve patients online, implementing electronic medical records, and broadening access to contraception for low income women.” “Many of the successes mentioned are the cumulative efforts of many, if not thousands of people, all working to the same end. This award honors my 500 employees, and nearly 1000 volunteers who actually do all of the work that we dream up for them to do!” said Charbonneau. “I could not ask for a better team on the ground. As well, our PPGNW Board members are the most astute, risk-taking, nimble people and I am incredibly grateful for their partnership. For the millions of women we all see, the people in the clinics or the classrooms or on the phone ARE Planned Parenthood, not the CEO of an affiliate.” Chris Charbonneau has been a CEO for Planned Parenthood affiliates for twenty-three years. She began as a volunteer in Seattle in 1982 as a sexuality educator and public policy volunteer. Chris started PP of Greater Arkansas in 1986. She left Arkansas in 1988 and returned to PP of Seattle-King County as COO, directing its 12 health centers.
