I am so excited to tell you what is currently happening with BPW throughout the State: Rosalind Vazquez, Membership Chair,...
Our mission is to achieve equality for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education, and information.
Our vision is to be the leading advocate for working women.
With 11 Locals (and more coming soon) across the state, it’s easy to join BPW and network with working women in your area.
Stay up-to-date with our Washington Business Woman (WBW) newsletter.
â€œIâ€™ve been a member for nearly 30 years.Â When the mission of BPW was explained to me, they had me at â€˜Women Helping Womenâ€™ and that hasnâ€™t changed over all these years.Â But the most value that I receive from being a member are the long standing friendships that we make, the support systems that are established, the program speakers that present subjects of interest both educational as well as enlightening and the political involvements both on the state level as well as national.Â Knowing that contributions to the Foundation provide scholarships to women for various reasons is no less of importance.â€
“I originally came to meetings to just get out of the house and listen to speakers that gave me a different perspective and to broaden my horizons locally. I soon found out that BPW is more than just a once a month meeting with good food and entertainment. It is about people helping each other professionally in their business or career and personally with so many diverse members as a knowledge base. BPW also helped to enlighten me politically. I am proud to say I worked hard to support and pass the Family Leave Act and Equal Pay for Equal Worth. BPW has given me the leadership training and self esteem to become a Sr. Manager within a 3, 000 employee company.”
“I joined BPW so I could connect with other women who owned their own business. I have gotten a lot of great information on how to enhance and grow my business while having fun with a group of dedicated, powerful, and diverse women. I am glad I joined BPW.”
