Business and Professional Women – much more than just a network

Business and Professional Women (BPW) is the most important association of working women nationally and globally. The expansive network of BPW supports women and uses targeted promotions to help them in their career and personal development.

The members of BPW include women in positions of responsiblity in business, politics and society. We also include women at the beginning of their professional careers.

BPW Switzerland has 2500 women from different occupations, management levels and industries, organised in over 40 clubs in all regions of Switzerland. BPW members develop partnerships throughout business, politics and society and are members of European and international bodies like the UN, WHO, EWL and ILO. BPW members are actively involved and influential in furthering the interests of working women.


Two new members for the Central Board

1. Member responsible for members
– the new member should not be older than 35 and belong to the Young BPW group. For us at BPW Switzerland, it is important to be able to gain new members and also to appeal to younger women. We do this firstly, via the Young BPW group and its members, but we would also like to elect a second member of the Young BPW group to the Central Board in order to help us and our clubs target our offering even better at young women.

2. Member responsible for politics – the new member should have a sound understanding of the mechanisms of Swiss politics and a broad knowledge of women-specific issues. Activities in the area of politics include creating subject-specific alliances on issues related to women and consolidating and further developing BPW's position as a key stakeholder.
