BPW Sydney is the longest running Business and Professional Women's Club in Australia, having been established on 17 July 1939.

BPW Sydney is an active lobby group and we take full advantage of our NGO status to lobby government and corporate organisations on matters related to business and professional women, including for more women in leadership and decision-making roles.

If you would like to join with other professional and business women to advance a progressive social justice agenda focused on women’s empowerment issues related to: economic empowerment for women and women in leadership and decision-making roles, contact us.

As part of BPW Australia, the BPW Sydney club practically addresses issues facing women in the world of work.  We're also interested in developing campaign-matched education and potentially, training events.  

We provide social support and networking, and give you a way to meet  people who are also interested in social issues.  We also facilitate access to the scholarships, awards, conferences and discounts on offer with BPW Australia.

We are a dynamic group of women who meet regularly to learn, share and network with great guest speakers.

We welcome guests and encourage new members.

We offer a friendly space for women to share their experiences, knowledge, and to seek ideas and support to improve their own lives. 

It is also a great way to make new contacts and forge new friendships with a diverse group: in race, religion, culture and workplaces. The dynamics of our group encourages debate; the sharing of ideas, and the support of each other.

At meetings we provide opportunities for personal and professional development, and for exchanging ideas in a non-threatening environment. 

Together we aim to make a direct contribution to promoting gender equality and improving the future of women: locally; across Australia and the World, through our International Group and our affiliation with the United Nations to realise the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

The women of BPW in Coffs Harbour are smart, wise and committed to the cause of representing our gender to ensure that the issues that are affecting our local female community such as superannuation and homelessness challenges for older women, inequity in pay packets and a lack of female participation on boards, are brought to the attention of the media, government and organisations set up to represent and care for us."
