About our club
BPW Doutta Galla was formed in 1960 and celebrated its 50 the anniversary in October 2010. After half a decade of service to women and the community in the north-west of Melbourne, it was time to look resolutely into the future, and in March 2011 Doutta Galla therefore took on a new name: BPW Melbourne North-West.
The Club has adopted a new Constitution and a three-year Strategic Action Plan to take us into the next few years with renewed vigour, and is working to expand membership. Melbourne North-West continues to encourage members to share and expand their knowledge, while also identifying issues that affect women in the wider community and finding practical and positive ways to address them.
BPW Melbourne North-West is so proud to continue supporting the Probus Women’s Housing Project. Over the past 44 years, this project has provided much needed accommodation for women in need. Five members of Melbourne North-West sit on the Probus Committee of Management.
We actively encourage guests to join us at our regular dinner meetings and other events.
The Club joins other BPW Clubs across Australia to work on issues such as Equal Pay and Paid Parental Leave. Locally, the Club has run many community projects over the years. Most recently the focus has been on delivering to school students interactive sessions on “Body Image & the Media”. In 2011 the Club began a pilot project to raise awareness of violence against young women in the workplace, focusing on small and medium-size enterprises in the Moonee Valley area.
