A powerfully-connected business and professional women's organisation, our influence extends across Europe and beyond through our affiliation to to BPW Europe, itself part of BPW International. Our global connections and professional network of friends and business partners allow us to make a real difference to women’s rights and issues, all the way up to United Nations level.
We work toward gender equality in all sectors of today’s society: pay, women's rights, respect, benefits, pensions and more, promoting women's empowerment from Director to apprentice. We do so through advocacy, lobbying and campaigning, events, and through collaboration with women to develop their skills and ability to make a difference themselves.
BPW International's Category 1 Consultative Status with ECOSOC - the United Nations Economic and Social Council -
gives us direct lobbying access to the UN. That presence is reinforced by BPW Europe's
Participatory Status with the Council of Europe.
And as one of the 6 leading women's organizations in the UK - known as 6-O - we have access to influence Government policy through lobbying Parliament and other routes.
So... ready to help make a real difference?
