From the Club President
Happy New Year . We have an exciting line-up of events being planned for 2018, starting in February with Celebrating NT Telstra Business Women of the Year, professional development activities, personal development meetings and a must-attend end of year gathering in December .
In 2017 our highly successful 2017 Ladies Ambrose Golf Day supporting Dawn House raised $4500. In 2018 we are focusing on raising funds to develop more tailored professional and personal development programs .
BPW Darwin is professionally run by a great group of women, who volunteer their time and energy to this wonderful Club. I encourage you to support the Club that supports you, and join our fantastic network of women.
In BPW, members matter most. We focus on issues and personal or professional development that is relevant to our own club. We enjoy different types of meetings, including powerful speakers, workshops to enhance our skills, social events where business connections are made and lifelong friendships.

President Angela Tomazos
After our AGM in 2017 we surveyed all our members for what was important in 2018. Our survey results revealed 66% of our members on not currently on NT Board and 80% are interested in joining one. Raising funds with our events that support more professional & personal development workshops is important to our members as well as peer to peer mentoring. We held meetings with Department of NT Chief Minister last year to discuss the goal of achieving gender parity on NT Boards by 2020. We researched some data to identify what is the current position and it is indicatively at 36% . We will continue to develop and plan opportunities for our members to focus on this goal.
