BPW Adelaide

BPW Adelaide advocates for women and develops leadership through building women's competence, capacity and confidence in their personal and professional arenas. Members work to take action for women's equality at work, on boards and in the economy.

BPW Adelaide holds events open to non-members, with expert speakers on topics relevant to modern working women.  We focus on the personal and professional development of our members and on advocating for changes that improve opportunities for women to engage in work and in business and to take up leadership roles.

We are a diverse group of passionate women, working towards improving the working lives we and future generations will experience in Australia and globally.

Professional interests and expertise across our membership include areas as diverse as ethics and governance, health policy and practice, small business in a range of industries and service sectors, representative government, finance and accounting, local government services and community services.

Women’s issues of interest include pay equity, access to affordable and appropriate child care, discrimination in the work place, financial security over a woman’s life-cycle and domestic/family violence.

BPW was established in South Australia in 1952 and is still going strong.

Our members are drawn from a range of backgrounds including business, professions, trades, government and non-profits.  

Many members have leadership experience within BPW and on public and community boards.
