Welcome to Washington State Business and Professional Women (BPW/WA). BPW/WA is committed to equity for all women in their professional, political, and personal lives.
Founded in 1921, BPW/WA is a member of BPW/USA which began in 1919. We are a multi-generational and bipartisan membership organization with local organizations throughout Washington State.
Our on-going mission is to promote economic self-sufficiency for all women in the workplace. To accomplish this, we provide personal development programs, workshops, networking, and friendship to help women realize their goals.
Local Organizations meet monthly and sponsor activities throughout the year. Each BPW/WA local organization creates its own unique agenda, while being part of our common mission. As President for the 2012-203 year, I welcome you and encourage you to join me in this year's focus: Planting Roots for the Future.
Blessings on you all, Teresa M. (Terry) Ray
