♪ welcome to "beyond the headlines." i'm cheryl jennings. every weekend we focus different topics of people who live and work in the bay area. i'm proud to host the professional business women's conference coming up tuesday march 10th at moscone center south. this year's theme, one life, one legacy, making the most of it you. it was founded more than a quarter of a century ago by congresswoman jackie spear. he she's joining us with some of the issues -- you just got
1:36 am
appointed to the house intelligence committee. >> it's's a heavy load. not only is it a lot to learn. but it's a heavy topic. what we do covertly and overtly through the cia, it's my job to make sure that the right questions are asked and that we don't engage on things like torture which senator feinstein did a fantastic job last year. >> you've been focusing on middle sexual trauma is a key issue for. you. >> the fact that 26,000 men and women will be assaulted in one year is and the military is not taking it seriously and now we're
1:37 am
seeing it taken seriously. i just had an experience with two cadets who had a hour rend us experience there and we're holding the academies accountable. >> you've got a bill that you want to close the loophole to track once out of the military. >> so, an interesting point, once you're convicted in the military, you serve your time, you are expected on your own, scout's honor, to register as a sex offender in the jurisdiction in which you live. everyone else in society has their dna taken, their fingerprints and they're placed on the registry before their release. so we will have any number of sexual offenders in our communities unbeknownst to us because the military has not put them on the sex offender list. this bill creates that within the military and requires the same process to take place before the predators are released from prison. >> one of the passions is
1:38 am
education for girls' science technology s.t.e.m. programs. >> it's important because those jobs are going to be in this century and women rely on how much they make per hour, per day in the same job. over the lifetime, $400,000 of lost income. so it's important for young women to recognize that s.t.e.m. is their future, science,ing at the north, engineering and math. we're actually trying to extend it to include the arts but truly, the jobs of this century are in those areas. and we've got to make sure women and young girls in particular are comfortable with coding and waking up in the morning and wanting to do math and science. >> health care, the new health care enrollment act california. you've seen a much more positive situation. >> you know, we have two health fairs right before the enrollment period ended. and it was amazing.
1:39 am
one gentlemen thought it was for poor people. he was spending $1,000 a month. here he came to this event and realized he could spend $500 a month. another family, $2,000 a month they were paying for health insurance. the wife had breast cancer and he didn't want to go without. he was making $42,000 a year in adjusted gross income. they're now going to be paying $187 a month. so there are great experiences that come to people who just ask the questions and go online and check it out. and we do know that it's working, 11.4 million americans now have health insurance. kids can stay on their parents' plans until they're 26. month more pre-existing conditions. no more annual caps or health care has no co-pays. your contraceptive pills, your mammographies. >> you've been passionate also about alzheimer's and the fact
1:40 am
that it affects so many women. i was shocked by that. >> i was, too. in fact, 2 out of every 3 people who will have alzheimer's is a woman. so not only are they the most likely to be in fact diagnosed with alzheimer's, typically are the caregivers. and when you look at the research that's being done, it's miniscule in reference to cancer research. and when you look at the federal government and how much is being spent to provide health care through medicare, it's something like $200 billion a year. by 2050, it's going to be over $1 trillion a year just for alzheimer's care. so we've got to put more money into research so we can find a cure to alzheimer's. >> the conference is something you founded 26 years ago. you're not even old enough to have founded that. >> okay. >> it's so amazing. i've had the great privilege of being there for so many years. why did you feel the need to do

that? >> well, first of all, thank you for being such a great supporter or sponsor of this. i did it because i thought a woman needs a place to mnetwork to find new career goals. women will come up to all of us, so many -- everyone on the board is doing it out of love and womenhood and promoting women. there's no psychic pay except for the psychic pay that you get when someone comes up to you and says, you know, this conference changed my life. that's what we do for 5,000 women every year. >> back then, there was so many discrimination against women. and not that many opportunities. how has that changed? >> well, the opportunities have increased to a certain extent, but luke at women of health, for instance, they are few and far
1:42 am
between. it's the term of art and we really need to change that. we need to put a spotlight the lack of women in positions in the tech world. that is in fact what the region is all about. discrimination goes on on college campuses. we see the sexual assault issues that are so prevalent. and we see it in the workplace, women are making 79 cents to 83 ye cents to a dollar earned by a man. so they're doing a good job. indeed, it is an opportunity to find those individuals who can be of great help to you. as you -- you know, develop your career goals. >> congresswoman, thank you for being here. and thank you for the conference. and we do have to take another short break. when we come back, we're going to hear from the board chair of

1:46 am
personally and professionally? >> well, it's certainly an honor to serve in the role. and i serve alongside an incredible group of board members and team members. it's a burden to think of all of the important work that still needs to be done towards advancing women and attaining gender equity. and heavying women to achieve their ambition. and as an organization we're continually trying to craft a program that really meets the needs and expectations of our great community. and we have the support of incredible countries, chevron and enron and abbott. there's a host of companies that have taken a step towards investing in women. we are proud to partner with our sponsor, proud to support our community achieve their ambitions. >> when i was a young woman coming up through the ranks, i
