We focus on issues that affect women and work. Our members include employees and employers, students and retirees, women who work in corporate and academia, small business and professions, trades, not-for-profit and government. BPW members give time and passion supporting our campaigns, running projects and driving change that's good for women and the world. Our focus is on empowering women through education and a supportive network of women locally and worldwide. Much of this work is done through BPW clubs across Australia – the heart of BPW, where women find friendship, networking, mentoring and the good times for which BPW Australia is also renowned. Membership gives access to scholarships, awards, conferences and discounts.
BPW actively promotes personal development, provides a forum for the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience and lobbies on issues affecting women.
Membership of BPW International is included in BPW Australia membership fees. This connects members to a worldwide network of women from a broad range of professional, cultural and business backgrounds. Read more...

BPW Australia Past Presidents History Project
8 February 2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of BPW Australia. Across the country, BPW clubs celebrated with birthday cakes.
The History of the Past Presidents of BPW Australia over these seven decades provides an insight into the passion of these extraordinary women and the changing times in which they lived. Reading about their commitment and zeal to positively change the lives of Australian women is inspiring and shows us how we can be brave enough ourselves to speak up for women's equality.
Have your say on matters important to women, join our discussion groups, keep updated on current developments, visit a club, enjoy good company and network locally or globally.
