BPW is For All Women:
In the Workplace, Marketplace & Community
Benefits and Opportunties
Membership in BPW offers many opportunities and many benefits for women. Our advocacy work gives women a chance to be involved in the key issues that affect women in Canada and around the world. Clubs provide a “training ground” for developing leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment, allowing members to build networks and create lasting friendships. Members participate in a range of activities that lead to personal and professional development and career advancement.
Numerous modules in leadership development, lobbying, communication management and many others are available to members.
A member of a local club is automatically also a member of the district, national, provincial, and international BPW organizations. BPW London is in the Southwestern Ontario district along with BPW Cambridge and BPW Kitchener-Waterloo. A BPW member is entitled to attend all events, including provincial, national and international conferences/conventions.
