Just in time to cozy-in for the holiday and New Year break, the Power Broker magazine is releasing a 100-page full-color commemorative edition, featuring “17 women who slayed in 2017.

The line-up includes women at the height of professional success, women breaking new ground in entrepreneurship, and women who “won” at the ballot box Inin St. Petersburg’s historic 2017 election.

In addition to high-profilers such as Dr. Tonjua Williams, President of St. Petersburg College (who will grace the cover of this edition), expect to be delighted by the stories of rising stars like Siobhan Monique, business sensations such as Marcina Dowdell-Williams, and community trailblazers including Nikita Hill.

In addition to the “17,” dozens of female leaders will be featured in special sections devoted to groups such as…

  • Young women on track to shatter glass ceilings
  • Women’s associations making their mark
  • Women leading sororities, and their priorities for impact
  • Women breaking ground in previously male-dominated sectors

The Power Broker will host one of its trademark photoshoot receptions to gather unique images for the gender-specific tome. The company expects to host 50 women for the occasion, welcoming them with live music, food and beverages.

“I’ve always loved our photo shoots, fun, classy, elegant…just an overall great time,” says Deborah Figgs-Sanders, who is curating the shoot. “And this one won’t lack that same elegance because of the women spotlighted in this issue.” Figgs-Sanders is CEO of Personal Agenda. She currently consults to the Power Broker Media Group and previously served as the company’s business manager.

Nikki Gaskin-Capehart, City of St. Petersburg Urban Affairs Director, notes “We’re using this platform to promote next year’s Women & Girls conference, especially some of our young ladies who are leading on multiple fronts.” Gaskin-Capehart is also founder of the Sisters Circle professional support network that sprang to life last year.

The magazine will release on approximately December 14th. Sponsorships will be confirmed in the weeks ahead.
