|Young Business and Professional Women|
Young Business and Professional Women (Young BPW) is a term for young BPW members who are 35 years old and younger. Young BPW (Young BPW ) has been one of the standing committees of BPW International since 1993. There are five regional coordinators, one being North America and the non-Spanish-speaking Countries of the West Indies of which Canada is part. At the provincial level, there is also a standing committee chair. Prior to September 1999, the committee was called Young Career Women (YCW).
The goal of Young BPW Ontario is to promote Young BPW partnerships within BPW at all levels and encourage Young BPW's to hold leadership roles as part of a training, mentoring and development program within the BPW organization.
The Young BPW Chair encourages each BPW President in Ontario to set up a Young BPW committee. Part of the roles and responsibilities of this committee would include:
In this electronic age, it is now possible to connect with so many others; across the city, in the next town or on the other side of the world in minutes. Connecting with others means enlightenment, understanding, support and friendship. Networking with Young BPW members around the world is done through the Young BPW newsletter, Young BPW electronic mailing list, the Young BPW home page and electronic meetings.
