Press conference on woman entrepreneurs

I went to a press conference about a study on woman entrepreneurs this morning. The main address was given by Nell Merlino, Founder and CEO of Count Me In, a not-for-profit entity that provides resources for women to grow their microbusinesses into multimillion dollar enterprises.
The thrust of the press conference was that women business owners are reluctant to hire. I stood to ask a question and summarized my business in three sentences. I asked if the women were contracting work out instead of hiring. Merlino said that contractors were included as hiring staff.
I also went to a talk about government transparency at the Brookings Institute. The speaker was Cass Sunstein, the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Unfortunately, he made it sound as though he thought everything was perfect, and didn’t seem very transparent.
