What we're about
Welcome to Business and Professional Women (BPW). BPW was founded in 1919 at the request of the US President to determine what professional women’s resources were available to aid in the war effort of WWI. It was the first organization in the United States promoting equity for women through advocacy, education, and information. Today it has the largest and most extensive women’s resource library in the country; a library Congress uses on a regular basis along with testimonies from BPW USA Foundation on issues affecting women and families.
As a member of BPW you have the opportunity to network with members around the state and in their local area, listen to enthusiastic and diverse speakers, participate in leadership training and individual development programs, become a leader or speaker within BPW, help other women to help themselves, learn about the politics that affect your business and personal life, and develop lasting friendships. BPW is an organization of women helping women whenever possible.
