Erin Brockovich, Keynote Speaker (Women to Women 2012 Celebration Luncheon)

Erin Brockovich, Keynote Speaker (Women to Women 2012 Celebration Luncheon)

The youngest child of Frank and Betty Jo Pattee, Erin Brockovich grew up in Lawrence, Kansas. After earning an Assoicates degree in Applied Arts, trying out several jobs, and divorcing twice, Erin found herself alone with three children to provide for.

After being seriously injured in a traffic accident in Reno, Erin moved back to Southern California with her children. In 1991, she hired the law firm of Masry and Vititoe to handle her case, and although she received $17,000 in settlement money, it did not begin to cover her debts. Unable to find work, she soon begged Masry and Vititoe to hire her as a $1,200 a month file clerk. It was not long after that some medical records she found in a pro bono real estate case file piqued her curiosity. After getting permission from the firm's principal, Ed Masry, she began to look into the matter.

Erin's solo investigation eventually established that the health of countless people who lived in and around Hinkley, California in the 1960's, 70's and 80's had been devastated by exposure to toxic Chromium 6. In 1996, as a result of the largest direct action lawsuit of it's kind, spearheaded by Erin Brockovich and Ed Masry, the giant utility was ordered to make the largest legal settlement in U.S. history, paying out some $333 million in damages to more than 600 Hinkley residents.

The story of Erin's investigation, legal triumph and personal issues were dramatized in the hit movie Erin Brockovich. Released in March 2000 by Universal Studios, it starred JULIA ROBERTS as Erin and ALBERT FINNEY as Edward Masry.

No longer a file clerk, Erin now serves as director of environmental research at Masry and Vititoe, where she is currently involved in other major environmental lawsuits that she put together. Remarried in 1999 to actor Eric Ellis, she lives with her husband and children in Agoura Hills, California.

Four Steps to Success

Erin has achieved much to be admired. But it didn't just happen. Hear from Erin her Four Steps to Success which include:

-LOGIC: Don't see Logic as only intellect, but use your common sense and listen to your instincts. After all, they are the spouse to logic.

-LEVERAGE: Get Your Leverage ON! Don't let this word scare you. Leverage can help strengthen your voice and strengthen you as an individual so that you can be heard! Remember, in mathematics, leverage means 1+1=2. But in principle, leverage means 1+1=1000!

-LOYALTY: This is stick-to-it-iveness and is something you must have to see your way to the end.

-AND: The burning question we all have..."Why Do I Do This?" Well, it's LOVE, ACTUALLY!

 

RAM: Realization, Assessment, and Motivation

Erin lives according to the guidelines she likes to call RAM. The R is for Realization. She believes you have to realize who YOU are, good and bad, before you can begin to know where you are going. A is for Assessment. Take stock, not in what you have, but in who you are. Look at your skills, weakness, strengths and applying traits where they need to be and let go of the bad ones. M is for Motivation. It’s hard to stay motivated in the world today and motivation is the steam that keeps us going. Motivation is about taking time for self renewal. We all need our batteries charged yet never take the time to do it and then just burn out.

Erin's ability to continue the good work she has done on behalf of other people is due to her belief in the above and she shares her story and tools for success with audiences nationwide.

 

The Power of One

Erin Brockovich is one of those rare individuals whose own true story has become part of our public consciousness. Seen by millions as a symbol of American justice and the importance of fighting for the truth, Brockovich continues to speak out on behalf of those who can’t.

After uncovering a 30-year long history of poisoning the groundwater in Hinkley, CA by PG&E, Brockovich dug in and didn’t give up until she had exposed the truth—and had gotten justice for its victims. She truly is proof that one person can make a difference, and she believes that everyone—in their own way—can do the same.
