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.

Women of Influence, this year’s theme, was demonstrated in action as our own Local Organization (LO) Member and State President of BPW Florida, Alizza Punzalan-Randle filled in for a panelist with less than two-hour’s notice. Leading by example, stepping up when necessary, speaking out
