Celebrate National Business Women’s Week with Virtual Bingo

Our Annual Celebration of working women in the 3rd week of October will take a new form this year of change. On Thursday October 22, from 6-7pm we’ll hold a virtual fundraiser benefitting the Connie Passmore Scholarship like none you’ve ever played. There will be multiple opportunities to win prizes by chance and by testing your knowledge of glass ceiling breakers and pioneering women in business. You’ll probably even find out about a few new SHEroes.

Get the Facts on Voting

Join us virtually when we welcome Robin Davidov from the League of Women Voters to our Zoom meeting on Thursday, September 24th at 6PM for an hour jam packed with information to help you be an informed and effective voter. Robin will review the constitutional amendments and school board races that we’ll all see on our ballots. Additionally, she’ll address the various methods by which to vote and how to make sure your vote is counted including dates and deadlines for absentee and early voting.

Our mission has been and continues to be equity for women in the workplace and one of the most effective ways to encourage workplace equity is to vote for it and for candidates that support it. Be engaged with the voting process and know who and what you are voting for in every election. Our foremothers are counting on us.

July 5: Multi-Generational Caregiving Roundtable

6:00-7:30 pm, R’Club, 4140 49th Street N, St. Petersburg     

Women care for others in many different ways.  As mothers, they care for their children.  As “caregivers”, they care for family members or acquaintances who have physical, psychological or development needs.  Women spend as much as 50% more time on parenting and caregiving than men.  Working women have even greater challenges due to lost wages from reduced work hours, time out of the work force, family leave or early retirement.  Our multi-generational caregiving roundtable will consider the challenges unique to working women.

Come share your stories and words of wisdom or come to learn from the experiences of others.  It’s potluck refreshments, so bring some food and drink to share.  No reservations are necessary.

Bubbles and Business

Do you like your business card? Is it projecting the image of you or your business that you desire? Let’s meet up and talk about it with experts.

On January 31, you are invited to The Melting Pot (2221 4th St N, St. Petersburg) for an event that is a little social, a little practical and a lot of fun. We’ll meet up around 6 pm and have some time to network and exchange those business cards. Perfect Copy and Print will provide some complimentary, yummy munchies. Then, the helpful folks from Media Garage, a woman owned, superstar advertising agency, will help us look at our business cards with an eye on marketing strategy and graphic design.

Reservations are not required but if you have any questions, feel free to contact Membership Chair, Tiki Bates at membership@bpwstpetepinellas.org for more information.
