1. Young women on BPW Boards


How do you learn how a board functions and how to behave in a board meeting? The best way is “learning by doing” in BPW.


All clubs and federation are  encouraged to take one young  BPW member on their boards.

This would be a win-win situation for the young women and for the board. Young women can learn how it is to work on a board, gain experiences in larger meetings, take responsibility for certain areas and gain self-confidence as a board member. This experience can be transferred to her professional career.

For the board on the other hand, they get additional skills as most young women bring new skill, e. g. they are familiar with internet, websites and social media. This is an area where we always can improve our promotion for BPW.


Therefore we ask all clubs and federations to look for young women whom they can take on board as this is an opportunity  to train young women for future board positions.
