During the first half of her administration, she focused on strengthening the city’s economy which led to hundreds of new jobs. Muoio has pledged to make West Palm Beach more business friendly, understanding that progress and growth are the keys to the city’s future.

She frequently tells business and industry leaders that West Palm Beach is not only open “for” business, but also open “to” business. Muoio holds a doctorate in education leadership from Syracuse University and worked for many years as a school district leader.

The next guest speaker will be Blanche Williams, president of Greatness by Design, LLC. (August 12). All talks will take place at the same time and location.

The Women’s Empowerment Forum is presented by the College’s Corporate and Continuing Education division, which provides training opportunities in a variety of professional leadership topics. As part of the division, the center offers individual courses, customized employee training, professional certification exam prep and special offerings like the Leaders Empowering Action Program designed to help managers become leaders.
