About our club

BPW Geelong was established in 1985 by our founding member, Micky Hayward, with the assistance of BPW Doutta Galla. Our vision is to empower the women of the Geelong region in all aspects of their life, including family, work, personal interests and wider communities. We offer our members and friends a great way to socialise and network at our monthly dinners and lunches. So if you are new to the region or just looking to expand your personal or professional connections we welcome you to join us at our next dinner or lunch event to enjoy the company of a friendly and dynamic group of professional women.

Spotlight

As part of our strategic plan, BPW Geelong has committed to supporting women who have recently returned, are returning or are entering the workforce. In line with this commitment, BPW Geelong has formed a new community partnership with BacLinks, for the ‘Best Foot Forward’ program. This program is aimed at specifically assisting women aged 25 -55 from disadvantaged and marginalized backgrounds on their journey into the workforce. Consisting of a full day workshop to be held on April 30 2014 for up to 30 long term unemployed women, the day will consist of a series of information sessions to help these women gain skills and self-confidence, with sessions planned on personnel grooming, resume writing, self-esteem and basic financial literacy.

BPW Geelong also supports young women in Geelong to pursue further education and achieve their optimum potential. We do this through a 2-year mentoring program for women attending the latter years of a high school in a less advantaged area. Over the past three years, 9 young women have graduated from our mentoring program, and another 5 women are currently actively part of the program
