Our Mission: To achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information.


2016–17 Officers at the Conference



Welcome to the 2017-18 BPW/OH year!  Your Leadership team has worked relentlessly to put programs together to assist you, our Members to have a strong and successful year. Please use your resources available to you: the Leadership Team, and the Website.  We are here to serve and guide you in having a Volcanic year!

My goals this year are to move BPW forward and make our mark on history.  I would like to increase our membership and have a plan to do just that.  We are advocates for women and need to use our VOICES!  Domestic Violence is an area I am very interested in along with human trafficking.  Both are symptomatic of our troubled society.  OVERCOMING OPPOSITION is important to make advances in our cause! All of us are LEADERS with our membership in this organization.  LEADERS take initiative and act accordingly.  CHANGES will follow with being leaders naturally.  Of course this leads to ACTION and takin a stand on NEGATIVITY.  And lastly, do not be afraid to think OUTSIDE THE BOX!

Our ID program is revised, condensed, and a wonderful tool to use for recruitment.  Make plans to hold a session in the near future. Please use our resources to stay informed legislative wise and exercise Your Right to Vote!

All the forms needed to run an efficient year are located here on the website for downloading.  Please use them and have a successful Year!  If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. bisbestrate@gmail.com  There are no stupid questions!

Be a VOLCANO this year! Set yourself on fire with enthusiasm for our cause to MOVE WOMEN FOEWARD IN HISTORY!
