Gender Equality in the Workplace

Join us on March 3 from 5-7:30 p.m. in Lynn Pippenger Hall for Gender Equality in the Workplace.

Learn how to promote equity where you work from seasoned professionals. In this dynamic conversation, we ask local leaders in business, nonprofit and government where changes in policy and culture originate to make workplaces more equal. They will share their perspectives on programs that promote equality and how you can be an advocate in your organization.

Learn from:

Selisse Berry | Founder, Out and Equal
Lynn Heckler | Executive Vice President and Chief Talent Officer, PSCU
Cal Jackson | Director, Diversity & Inclusion Global Programs, Tech Data
Scott Smith | President, St. Anthony’s Hospital
Dr. Kanika Tomalin | Deputy Mayor, City of St. Petersburg

This conversation will be moderated by Rita Lowman, president of Pilot Bank.
