About our Club
It doesn't matter whether you're young, or young at heart, nor does it matter whether you are a business-woman, a professional or neither, because every woman has something to contribute or to enjoy.
BPW Belmont is a small but highly effective club, with a focus on empowering women and youth, both at a local and a global level.
The club is a relaxed and open environment with an emphasis on sharing and collaboration. BPW Belmont enjoys strong relationships with a network of local organisations which also seek to foster a stronger and happier community, women's empowerment and a better future for the world.
The club takes two pathways to achieve those objectives:-
Supporting each other in personal growth and in times of need. We provide a forum where women can enrich their knowledge and understanding in the civic, economic and political arenas, offering interesting and informed speakers and an environment of mentoring and sharing. Develop your potential and be your best you!
Monthly networking and dinner meetings are held to enable networking, fellowship and skills development with a range of interesting guest speakers. Inspiration, education and motivation available!
Supporting others by helping women everywhere to gain economic independence and equality. In turn, they will enrich their communities. We assist our sister clubs around the world and work with BPW Australia and BPW International to bring better education and training, and to promote economic empowerment and recognition of human rights.
In collaboration with BPW Western Australia, we hold an annual International Women's Day event when women from diverse backgrounds or those belonging to the local community gather. This event is always eagerly anticipated and enjoyed by all. Other annual events include the collection of canned goods for Christmas food hampers distributed to needy families through the Jacaranda Community Centre, as well as Primary School Scholarships to assist female students graduating from primary to secondary education.
