The theme of the congress was “Equality” and what still needs to be done to move this topic forward. Partaking in a BPW Conference is a unique opportunity to experience how the strength of the BPW network supports women in their career and personal development.
The conference was concluded with the handover to the next host of the 18th BPW European Conference in 2025: Malta!
