BPW clubs in Western Australia hold monthly events to empower women through professional and personal development, share stories of achievement and encourage all women to reach their potential.
We support initiatives that will increase the participation of women in girls in all decision making.
Check back here to find out what's on this month.
2023 is a BPW Australia National conference year and we are heading to Darwin to join with members from across Australia plus BPW International guests.
BPW Perth is renowned for its hospitality.
BPW Perth began in 1946 and for many years was the only club in WA. The founding members included many well-known pioneers of the women's movement with a focus on education and politics to make a difference for women.
For seven decades members have gathered for monthly dinner meetings and regular business meetings to progress issues of importance for women.
BPW Perth members travel internationally to BPW conferences in Europe, South America and Asia and to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women held annually in New York.
" I would personally like to welcome you to the Perth Business and Professional Women's Club. If you are interested in meeting informed, helpful and supportive women, come along to our monthly meetings.
We take pride in being involved in all aspects of women’s business and welfare. The evenings are always lively, informative with an eclectic group of women from all backgrounds."

BPW Belmont is a relaxed and open environment with an emphasis on sharing and collaboration.
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.
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!
Supporting others by helping women everywhere to gain economic independence and in turn, they will enrich their communities. We assist our sister clubs around the world and work to promote economic empowerment and recognition of human rights.
" You will always find a very warm welcome at BPW Belmont, where we believe that it's important to be yourself.
Enjoying good company, some quality networking and making friendships for life are just some of the benefits.

Our projects and programs focus on what matters to women including health, equal pay and leadership skills – our goal is to help women gain the skills they need to succeed in whatever they want to do.
We run a UN Women (formerly UNIFEM) Spring Walk annually, support the White Ribbon campaign against domestic violence every year and also raise funds for BPW’s international projects including the BPW International nursing school with scholarships for women in girls in La Paz, Mexico.
Our club has a reputation for being committed, reliable, loud (!), fun, friendly, involved, supportive, energetic and liable to burst into song at any moment.
We actively encourage new members and guests to join us at our meetings.
We meet monthly, and our events include dinner meetings, personal development and training workshops, social outings and working breakfasts!

20th Anniversary in 2020
BPW Harvey is situated in the picturesque South West of Western Australia, just under 2 hours from Perth.
Education has been of particular interest and is one of our annual projects. It has included running an annual writing competition for local primary schools during Book Week. We also support the Harvey High School with a bursary per year to assist a student-in-need.
For many years, our members have created baby bundles to support new mothers in the area. We believe that touching women's lives during this special time creates bonds with our organisation that we hope in return, may generate support for club projects in the coming years. A local pharmacy also now supports this initiative by contributing a voucher for each bundle.
Our club responds to crises in the bigger community by providing support across Australia to victims of bushfire and flood plus we have provided recycled school materials to children in remote areas. Recently we provided some bed linen for a new regional cancer respite house in Bunbury.
The BPW Harvey Annual Report is an inspiration to other clubs that seek to make a difference in their local communities and beyond. Interested women are invited to contact us to find out more about BPW and join us for a meeting.
"If you are interested in finding out more about BPW in your local area, you are invited to join us at one of our meetings. Please check back regularly to find out what's on this month.
You can book online to attend. You will find out more about us, meet some of our wonderful members and enjoy a topical guest speaker.

Online BPW WA eClub
BPW WA e-Club is a virtual Business and Professional Women's Club, connecting business and professional women from across Western Australia through regular online meetings with guest presenters, both local and from all around the world.
BPW WA eClub helps members stay in touch with women's issues and with each other, to build new professional networks, continue their professional development and contribute to advocacy campaigns to ensure women have equal opportunities in all aspects of life through economic security and financial empowerment.
We also have fun along the way and many life-long friendships are forged.
At BPW WA State Conference and BPW Australia National Conference, there are opportunities to meet face-to-face with other members and travel opportunities can take you to BPW clubs, anywhere in the world.
Women live busy lives and it is not always possible to attend local meetings. There may not be a BPW group that is easy to get to from where you live or work, particularly for rural and remote WA women but even for many business and professional women living in our cities, life can get in the way of regularly attending meetings of an evening or early morning - especially if they are balancing working full-time, carer responsibilities, nurturing children and other life circumstances that limit their time and/or mobility.
BPW Australia is keen to expand BPW across the State of Western Australia. If you are interested in establishing a BPW club in your local community, please contact Kate Waters, BPWA Director of Membership firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the support and new club resources that are available.
