Welcome to BPW Europe!
This is an exciting time to begin the new 2011-2014 triennium with a renewed focus on women in the economy and women in leadership, power and decision making roles.
BPW International was founded on the vision of achieving workplace equality, right to vote and equal pay. Eighty years on and the issues are still the same but the armory is different. Today, we are equipped with the vital piece that has been missing for decades – the business case.
Since the launch of our triennium theme - Empowered Women Leading Business - BPW women are inspiring businesses, empowering communities and creating opportunities around the world. We will bring you regular insights into what and how our members are creating lasting change by leading the BPW International initiatives that are firmly in place.
There is no better time to join BPW and bring the voice of women to business. BPW members are courageous women. Bold Women. We are Empowered Women Leading Business...in the community, at all levels and from the top. Join us now!

Equal Pay Day 2013 in Europe
In 2009 BPW started its international Equal Pay Day Awareness campaign.
Last year our affiliated federations and clubs in Europe were active again for organizing events and activities around Equal Pay Day.
First results of our Equal Pay Day Awareness campaign have been achieved in some countries.
The European Equal Pay Day was in 2012 on 2nd March as the average pay gap decreased to 16.4 % (17 % in 2011)!
Now our BPW Federations and Clubs are preparing the Equal Pay Days for 2013. 23 countries are active around Equal Pay Day this year.
BPW Dance "Women of the World"
For the European Congress in Sorrento we created a special dance for the song "Women of the World" of Jeanette Arsenault from BPW Canada.
Now this dance is going around the world, and women danced in USA, Kanada, Estonia and also in Taiwan at the Regional Conference Asia Pacific.
Come and join this international dance movement!
