Welcome to BPW Australia, part of the global network of BPW International

Our focus is on issues that affect women and work, and we welcome as members women in paid and voluntary work, including women who used to work and women who aspire to work. Our members are drawn from a wide range of working women: employers and employees, corporate women and small business women, women in professions and trades, and from the non-profit and government sectors. They give their time and passion to support our campaigns, run projects and drive change that's good for women and the world. Much of this work is done through BPW clubs across Australia – the heart of BPW.  The clubs are also where women find friendship, networking and the good times for which BPW Australia is also renowned. Membership of BPW Australia gives you access to scholarships, awards, conferences and discounts.

Our Mission  BPW supports and actively promotes personal development, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas,  knowledge and experience and lobbies on issues affecting women.

 Have your say on matters important to women, join our discussion groups, keep updated on
current developments, visit a club, enjoy good company and network locally or globally.

Equal Pay Day 2015

In 2015, Equal Pay Day fell on Friday 4 September, based on the Gender Pay Gap, calculated using Average Weekly Earnings survey results released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in August. The Workplace Gender Equality Agency fact sheet Gender workplace statistics at a glance has been updated with the latest figures. The Gender Pay Gap is the difference between men’s and women’s wages and stands at 17.9% in 2015. This means that men in the paid workforce earn an average of $284 more than women each week.
