About BPW Hawera
The Federation of Business and Professional Women (BPW) is an international organisation with consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and participatory status with the Council of Europe.
There is a New Zealand federation (BPW NZ) and we’ve got a local club in Hawera.
Hawera is a very nice social club with 47 members (age of members ranging from their twenties to sixties and with a variety of skills and occupations).
Our membership is steadily growing. We have a dinner meeting (usually with a guest speaker) every 3rd Monday of the month, 6pm at Tairoa Lodge Church hall.
We also get involved in “social responsibility” and community projects. Examples are our support to the Hawera Rape Crisis centre and the Taranaki safe families collaborative and their “Taranaki, where family violence is not OK” campaign...
Your Network, Your Development!
BPW develops the professional, leadership and business potential of women on all levels through advocacy, mentoring, networking, skill building and our economic empowerment programs and projects around the world.
