YoungBPW is a sisterhood. We develop the professional, leadership and business potential of our members through advocacy, mentoring, networking, skill building and economic empowerment programs and projects.
Spread throughout New Zealand, our members come together to support and empower one another. We meet via video conference regularly and in person at our annual symposium and national and regional events – plus our Facebook group is busy.
Affiliated to Young BPW International, we support local, national, international and virtual campaigns around the globe by backing sister organizations.
Our YoungBPW Convenor represents YoungBPW on the national executive (click here to view Job Description) and Clubs are encouraged to establish a similar position at the local club level to support our young members.
