Our meetings include learning, networking, and opportunities to engage with your fellow business and professional women. Our club fosters an atmosphere of empowerment for women to find their voice in the professional world. We seek to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information. BPW recognizes that true strength lies in our ability to empower another.
