The Studio@620 & Business and  Professional Women (BPW)/St. Petersburg-Pinellas present "Women’s Success Stories: Shaping Your Career or Letting It Shape You" on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 5:30-8:00 p.m. at The Studio@620.

Celebrate National Business Women’s Week™ with Business and Professional Women (BPW)/St. Petersburg-Pinellas by attending the chapter's annual Working Women's Forum. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average woman born in the latter years of the baby boom (1957-1964) held eleven jobs from age 18 to age 46. Whether by choice or by chance, plan or circumstance, a woman often lands on a career path that is quite different from the one on which she embarked.

An all-female panel representing the diverse voices found among different work environments, multigenerational workplaces, and professional career stages, will reflect on their varied experiences and backgrounds as they discuss how women in leadership roles and work-life effectiveness impact career choices. The panelists are:

- Margaret Cooley, Director of the Leadership Development Institute at Eckerd College
- Gypsy Gallardo, Publisher of The Power Broker and Grapevine magazines
- Marty Petty, President of MAP & Associates
- Sara Stonecipher, Clothing Designer and Owner of MISRED Outfitters

Tami Simms, a local real estate professional and President of the St. Petersburg Downtown Business Association, will moderate the forum.

This event is open to the public. The forum will be in a panel format, followed by a Q&A session. A reception with light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will precede the discussion. Advance tickets are $15 for BPW members, $20 for non-members. Admission at the door is $25. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: www.bpwstpetepinellas.org.
