BPW’s Four Cornerstones

BPW is about...Connection, Growth, Positive Change and a Voice at all levels of the organization:

  1. Grass Roots Local Club

  3. Provincial
  4. National
  5. International

The Membership Model is comprised of Four Cornerstones:

BPW Meets the Changing Needs of Members across time through Depth, Longevity & Diversity.

Membership in BPW is not about being all things to all people. Instead, it is about recognizing that by the very nature of our club’s mandate we can offer a range of activities and the opportunity for participation that can satisfy the unique needs and changing circumstances of each individual member. BPW as an organization for women fully recognizes that women throughout their career paths and life stages will desire different types and levels of participation. BPW offers its members an organization with longevity since (1930), with depth (local, provincial, national and international) and diversity with membership from across all occupational sectors.
