Short description:
While capacity-building and confidence-building enable more women to advance to executive positions, the goal of equal participation is still far from being a reality. BPW International is giving high priority to create opportunities for women to rise to the level of top executives by collecting evidence on the return on investment when women become top executives.
In addition, BPW offers personal development programs for members such as mentoring, leadership training and e-Business training. Since 1996, BPW affiliates worldwide have helped over 45,000 women to become economically empowered.
