Please join us on September 17th as we welcome Margie Manning, Print Editor of the Tampa Business Journal, for a special program on Women in Business. Learn which local companies lead in diversity by stepping up to the challenge of choosing women for leadership positions and which lag behind as Margie shares her years of wisdom reporting on issues in business, banking, and other “money” related fields . As a seasoned professional journalist, Margie has been covering news of interest regarding women’s progress, pitfalls, and praises in the Tampa Bay area for more than ten years in her present position. Prior to that she worked in the St Louis area. Hailing from the heart of the Midwest, St Louis, Missouri, Margie earned her degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and has been a fixture in local business news. She will share her own experience as a female journalist in a traditionally male centric field, as well as stories of other prominent and up-and-coming women on the local business scene over the years. We look forward to an entertaining and informative program you won’t want to miss!
