About Us

BPW Ottawa meetings are open to both members and guests. Guests are welcome to attend up to two meetings before committing to membership. We seek to develop the professional, business and leadership potential of women through education, awareness, advocacy and mentoring within a supportive network. Membership ( Click here for more info ) provides great value as it opens you to a local network of business and professional women as well as connections with advocacy and education on the provincial, national and international level.
