BPW Boulder

BPW Boulder is part of what could be considered the original business and professional women's networking organization. In 2019, our organization will celebrate 100 years of historical support for women and women's rights. BPW Boulder was established in 1923, shortly after the national organization was founded in Colorado in 1919. Joining an organization like BPW Boulder offers you an opportunity to truly make a difference for women in our community and beyond. Our members benefit from belonging to an organization that has made strides for working women in so many areas - and so much still needs to be done. Join us for an event and meet some of the movers and shakers in Boulder County!
