As BPW women, it is essential to remember and pay homage to the remarkable women who came before us, enduring significant struggles so that women today can enjoy the freedoms and opportunities they do.
Our rich history dates back to the inception of BPW International in 1930, founded by Lena Marsden Phillips, a trailblazing woman who served as its first president. BPW Canada, alongside its global counterparts, has its own compelling narrative, interwoven with the broader BPW movement.
Throughout our history, the objectives of BPW clubs have remained steadfast: to champion equal status for women in economic, civil, and political spheres; to advocate for the interests of business and professional women; to foster education and occupational training for girls and women; and to promote collaboration between professional and business women.
Discover why BPW continues to stand as a vital organization for advocacy, learning, leadership, and collaboration. Join us as we carry forward the legacy of empowering women, making a lasting impact on generations to come.
