The Sanibel Captiva Charter Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association will present a Women in Leadership Speaker Series, with the first event on Aug. 28 to feature guest speaker Calli Johnson. The presentation is “Family, Philosophy and Wisdom from a Multi-Generational Workforce.”

Johnson works with her family to run Bailey's General Store and its family of companies. After graduating with her master's from the University of Florida, she decided to join the family business as a fourth generation owner-operator, alongside her parents and siblings. Each member of the family has a special niche in the business; Johnson's is handling the wine department, working as a community liaison and general management of the store. Her future goals include bringing the store into the 21st century, while maintaining the charm and hospitality Bailey's is known for. When Johnson is not at work, one can find her enjoying the water and wildlife of Sanibel and Captiva.

The ABWA chapter meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, at 1451 Middle Gulf Drive, Sanibel. Networking starts at 11:30 a.m., with lunch and a speaker from noon to 1 p.m. The cost is $20 per person. The meetings are open to the public - men and women alike.

To RSVP, email info@ABWASanibelCaptiva.org or register online at Eventbrite.
