Why I'm a BPW Member

  • BPW supports and assists women to be all they can be, improving women's lives worldwide. The friendships I have made over the years keep me in BPW. – Kingston member since 1983.

  • BPW has definitely helped me grow as a person and a business woman.  I feel much more comfortable talking to groups and I have learned numerous business skills. My life is definitely richer in many ways. – Barrie member since 2004

  • I belong to several business and networking groups but I particularly enjoy BPW as the members are diverse, approachable and supportive with a common shared interest in women’s issues. - London member since 2012.

  • BPW is a true sisterhood of women who are always there for one another when needed.  Their community involvement is exemplary as is their dedication to the plight of less fortunate women everywhere.  - Brampton member since 2002.
