About BPW UK

Why are we here?

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!
