Ford & Harrison LLP, a national labor and employment law firm, is pleased to announce that The Central Florida Women's Resource Center has presented their prestigious Summit Award to Orlando-based partner Kay L. Wolf. The award was presented on October 18 at the Orlando Museum of Art.

Awards are given to women who have contributed to the Central Florida community by performing countless hours of community work for the good of all; having a history of diverse community service, and whose service goes beyond job related responsibilities. In addition, the award winner demonstrates leadership through community visibility, support of women's issues, and acting as a role model (both professionally and socially).

Wolf, Board-certified by the Florida Bar as a Specialist in labor and employment law, has practiced in the area since 1976. Her practice is devoted to providing management with the necessary tools to meet the challenges in today's employment arena, through proactive legal advice, training, and litigating complex cases in both trial and appellate courts. Wolf is a certified mediator in Florida's circuit courts and in the U.S. Middle District of Florida. She also serves as an arbitrator. She received her J.D. from University of Louisville School of Law in 1975.

"I am grateful to the Women's Resource Center for its commitment to women and girls in Central Florida and for recognizing the work of individual women to our community through the Summit Awards.  It is indeed an honor to be a part of this rich tradition,"  commented Wolf.

About The Women's Resource Center
In 1983, a small group of women began discussing the unmet needs of women in Central Florida. These discussions prompted ongoing meetings and the group expanded to include representatives of various women's organizations, all eager to work together for the common good of women. The group felt a need for an organization to serve as a networking center, to provide a place to cross-reference women's concerns and to act as a resource for women living in Central Florida.

One year later, the Women's Resource Center (WRC) was officially founded with its goal to serve as a clearinghouse for women's issues. Its first members met throughout the year to study, plan and discuss what services for women were still needed.
