Working Women's Forum

The 2017 BPW Working Women’s Forum: Women of Influence held on October 17 was a huge success in so many ways. The panelists (Dr. Tonjua Williams, Molly Moorhead and Alizza Punzalan-Randle) were skillfully guided by moderator Cathy Unruh in a lively discussion of their careers, obstacles overcome, lessons for others and how best to exert influence. It was an evening filled with insight, humor, and honesty. The site of the forum, Lynn Pippenger Hall at USF St. Petersburg Kate Tiedemann College of Business, was amazing.

Message from the President

As a northerner, it’s kind of nice having a change in the weather, but I’m grateful every morning to wake up in (usually) sunny and warm Pinellas County!
