Authors Margaret “Peg” Beck and George Schofield, Ph.D., are the inaugural speakers for the Women’s Resource Center’s new series.
(Sarasota-Manatee, FL) The Women’s Resource Center has announced its new Authors Series, a program that showcases regionally based authors. The series launches this month with two inspirational authors, Margaret “Peg” Beck and George Schofield, Ph.D. Each author will appear at both Manatee and Sarasota Women’s Resource Centers. For more information, visit www.thewomensresourcecenter.org or call 941-256-9721.
“The Author Series evolved from a pilot program consisting of an author discussion in Bradenton, which received great positive feedback,” says Ashley Brown, WRC’s executive director. “From a client survey, we know that financial education is important. Additionally, our peers and counselors have witnessed that restoring confidence nourishes the healing process, which is why we believe that these two authors are excellent speakers to kickoff this series.”
Margaret “Peg” Beck, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, is a nationally certified senior human resources professional and the director of human resources at the Community Foundation of Sarasota County. She is also the co-founder of a management consulting firm, Creative Consulting Associates, LLC, based in Sarasota and co-author of “The Female Architect: How to Rebuild Your Life” and “The Female Factor: A Confidence Guide for Women.” Beck will present a reading with discussion, Tuesday, September 19, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Women’s Resource Center in Manatee at 1926 Manatee Avenue West in Bradenton; and Wednesday, October 11, 5:30-7 p.m., at the Women’s Resource Center in Sarasota at 340 S.
