Join us on January 5, 2023, as we welcome St Petersburg College Professor Tara Newsom, who will address how Thomas Paine’s quote is relevant to today’s political climate and our BPW/FL Public Policy Platform. Professor Newsom is the founding director of St. Petersburg College’s Center for Civic Learning & Community Engagement, which is strategically designed to create diverse civic leadership through public service. Newsom encourages and cultivates critical thinking skills in the classroom and arms students with the tools to be successful, academically and personally. She is a contributor to WUSF’s Florida Matters program, NPR’s America Amplified, PBS’s Florida This Week, and Tampa Bay’s NBC affiliate, WFLA.
BPW: As the first organization to focus on issues of working women, BPW is historically a leader in activism, policy influence and advocacy for working women. The BPW network includes members of diverse ages, races, occupations and politics. BPW has been a successful leader in promoting and supporting legislation affecting working women ever since 1919 statewide and 1966 locally. In addition, BPW provides its members with the tools to be successful personally, professionally and politically. A number of special events are held throughout the year to raise funds for scholarships, microgrants and other causes relevant to working women. We are committed to coalition-building with other like-minded organizations in the community, including the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce.
