with the confidence and connections
to make a difference!
Drawn from business and professional women active right across the UK, our influence extends across Europe and beyond through our affiliation to to BPW Europe, itself part of BPW International. Our many connections and global network of friends and partners allow us to make a real difference to women’s issues and concerns.
We work toward gender equality in all sectors of today’s society: pay, rights, respect, benefits, pensions and more, from Director to apprentice. We do so through advocacy, lobbying and events, and through working with women to develop their skills and ability to make a difference themselves.
Our Category 1 Consultative Status with ECOSOC - the United Nations Economic and Social Council -
gives us direct lobbying access to the UN.
In Europe, that presence is reinforced by our
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.
