The Tampa branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is excite to announce the 2023 B.E.S.T.-X Women's Empowerment Conference and Expo. . AAUW is a nonprofit and non-partisan organization that has been in the community for over 100 years. Its mission is to advance gender equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy. AAUW Tampa is hosting a half-day Womens Empowerment Conference entitled B.E.S.T.-X;Better Empowered Self Training Experience and Expo”. The event will be held on April 1st, 2023, from 10am -2 pm at the University of South Florida, Marshall Center, Tampa, Florida. We invite you to show your community support and participate in this great endeavor as a community organization.

Reports on gender show several gaps when comparing women to men. For instance, women earn 82 cents for every $1 earned by men. Men hold 62% of manager jobs, and women only hold 38%. In addition, 1 in 4 executive suite leaders are women, with the number down to 1 in 20 for minority women. 43% of women leaders report burnout compared to 31% of men. In addition, women are underrepresented in many STEM fields and fall in "the only" category in many instances, which can create a different level of stress. These facts continue to present the need for focused women empowerment and advocacy.

Our goal with the B.E.S.T.-X Women's Empowerment Conference is to bring more than100 women in the Tampa Bay Area together for professional development, networking, and panel discussions on how to get back to school or work or make career changes. The day will also include a salary negotiation workshop and information and business booths that share resources available to support women growth in their personal and professional lives. In addition, there will be basic health screenings bringing awareness to the importance of women's health and an inspiring motivational speaker encouraging these women to reach their full potential in all aspects of their lives. 

Your assistance in sharing this information with women in your organization and circles will be vital to its success.
