Welcome to the home of 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.
