BPW is delighted to welcome back renowned journalist Margie Manning on June 6 to speak about the media’s portrayal of women. The visibility of women in leadership roles has long been touted as a key to getting an equal number of seats at the table. With national campaigns among advertisers such as the #SeeHer initiative, is any of it working to help women achieve equity in the workplace?
Margie Manning started her journalism career as a radio news reporter in St. Louis, before putting down her microphone and picking up a pen to work at the St. Louis Business Journal. Unable to resist the call of warm weather and beaches, Margie took an entrepreneurial detour to run an ice cream shop in Treasure Island with her husband. Before joining the Catalyst, Margie spent 14 years at the Tampa Bay Business Journal where she wrote about business successes, failures and the exciting world of innovation and start-ups. Her writing coaches are Bonnie the Dog and Coffee the Cat.
