BPW Mission: To achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information
The Business & Professional Women of Ohio was established in 1920 and was part of the Business & Professional Women/USA. BPW has a proud history of working for women’s rights and issues. Over the years BPW has worked for the women’s right to vote, allowing women to serve on juries, pay equity, health issues, discrimination in the job market, etc.
We are now a legacy partner of the BPW/Foundation based in Washington DC and continue to promote the legacy programs of BPW i.e. Young Careerist, Individual Development and National Business Women’s Week®
Our locals work to better the lives of women by offering scholarships, donate to domestic violence shelters, food banks, rape crisis centers and the America Legion Buckeye Girls State. BPW is an organization dedicated to women helping women.
