BPW North Lakes

About our Club

BPW North Lakes formed in June 2015 with a few members, and was approved to charter from BPW Australia with 15 members in November 2015 and chartered in February 2016 with 22 members. Currently we have 20-30 members with expressions of interest of ladies looking to join each month. 

BPW North Lakes encompasses networking, mentoring and elevating the status of women on the North Side of Brisbane.

North Lakes is in one of the biggest growing areas in Queensland. Members can be any female that is in paid or voluntary work, including women who used to work and women who aspire to work. 

Our goal is to take action for women’s equality – at work, on boards and in leadership. BPW promotes personal development, mentoring and sharing of ideas and experiences. 

We look forward to developing this club to the full extent of the Aims and Objectives of  BPW Australia and BPW International.

We are actively seeking members and invite you to email us to find out more about the benefits of belonging to BPW North Lakes
