Each October, we celebrate National Business Women’s Week by naming a Business of the Year and Woman of the Year: member-run businesses and individual members that have inspired us and made particularly positive impacts on our organization and the broader community over the past 12 months.

The BPW mission is to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, education and information.
We seek to empower the women in our community to reach their full potential. We accomplish this by creating opportunities for personal and professional growth, providing scholarships to adult women in support of their education and career advancement, and advocating for issues that matter to working women and their families.
The National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs was founded in July 1919 and has a long history of notable achievements on behalf of women. Every working woman has benefited from the organization's efforts in education, scholarship, public policy, equal pay and lobbying for women's rights.
