4:21 pm
settles or go to trial, but i am a trial attorney and i do enjoy trials. >> trial attorneys like to go to trilg. like surgeons like to do surgery. you mentioned all of the other cases that you usually are involved with. would it be safe to say this is one of the stranger cases that you've taken on? >> it is, but i grew up with the flint stones. i entered the contest to name pebbles. it is a different case for me. 80% of my cases are employment discrimination, civil rights. people get fired because they are sick or because they are gay or because they are women. and that is what 85% of my cases are. so it is very different. but i have to tell you, i love it. and i especially love how much mrs. fang loves her home and her garden. >> are tll right. we'll see how it turns out. and now back to our weather. the rain let up in the morning for a little bit to provide a

4:49 pm
how has it evolved? you brought the program from the very first one. and many successful years. so talk about how it has grown over the years. >> at the beginning as i said we started out of the small group. and we decided that we had a vision and we actually wrote down our goals. we wanted to be for women who were already working. who had college degrees for most of the jobs that needed that already. and we wanted to be especially for women between about 35 and 55. we built a bell curve and we said how many we wanted to come. and we invited in the top name we could find at the time who had just published a book about when giants learn to dance. and she was head of the harvard business school publication. and so it gave us gravitas.
4:50 pm
and we met our goals and so we decided that it would put us out of business, by 2000. but that wasn't to be. >> no, we're still going. and is this a nonprofit? >> yes, it was started by jackie speer and a group of us who volunteered all of our time. and it has always been very important to us to continue to be a nonprofanprofit and made u other women trying to find their way, manage the changes, balance their careers. and hopefully reach beyond what was just said on the air about the difference that we have now with the pay equity of men and women. >> absolutely. and usually usually there helping out because abc 7 is a big supporter. and so many people attend and get so much out of it. that i think that they would all like to thank you and all the
