with the confidence and connections
to make a difference!
Business and Professional Women UK - generally known simply as BPW UK - is an organisation that encourages women to
realise their full potential in the workplace and make a real difference in their community.
We do so through building strong networks that help women develop themselves personally and professionally, and that are connected at the highest levels of UK and international policy-making.
Founded in 1938 BPW UK has a strong record of advocacy in employment, finance, education, health, and human and legal rights and was a very
active campaigner and lobbyist for the Equal Pay Act of 1970 and the Sex Discrimination Act of 1975.
We're also here to have fun, of course!

As well as real fellowship, friendship, networking and support, we give UK professional women the chance to make a real difference to womens' lives through lobbying and advocacy, via BPW International’s consultative status with UN agencies, the European Women’s Lobby, the Council of Europe and many other local, national and international bodies.
