President's Message

June is designated as LGBT Pride Month. St. Petersburg will celebrate on June 22-24 ( and BPW/SPP will honor the month with both our programs: the impact of LGBT consumers on June 7 and transgender social acceptance on June 21. In between those two program meetings, BPW/FL will hold its 2018 Annual Conference in Clearwater Beach.

We have begun to implement the plans formulated for the 2018-2019 BPW/SPP year and have begun planning for our Equality Day Tea on August 25 and our annual Working Women’s Forum in October. Please contribute to the planning efforts for when we work together, we can achieve even more.


Sheila Barry-Oliver, Ed.D.

BPW/SPP President 2018-2019
