Business and Professional Women (BPW) is a non-sectarian, non-profit, non-partisan organization that works to improve economic, political, social, and employment conditions for women.
Founded in 1932, BPW Ontario is an association of BPW clubs across the province. Each Ontario Club member enjoys membership in BPW Canada, a founding member of BPW International. There are BPW Clubs in more than 95 countries. BPW International has held Consultative Status at the United Nations since 1947.
Joining a BPW club connects people who identify as women to an international network working together for equality and change. Local clubs hold monthly events that may include guest speakers, workshops, networking, fundraising, and more while utilizing four cornerstones: learn, lead, advocate, and collaborate.
