Welcome to BPW Maryland! Thank you for visiting our website. If you are new to BPW please feel free to visit any of our "About Us" pages to learn more about who we are and what our organization does to help women succeed. You can find meeting information on our "Local Organizations" tab to find a meeting near you.
Founded in 1919, the National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs, Inc. (BPW/USA) was the first national organization formed to promote equality for women in the workplace. In 2009, BPW/USA merged with the BPW Foundation (founded in 1956), and includes a network of over 12,000 workingwomen in hundreds of cities and towns across the country.
BPW/MD encompasses members from every profession and walk of life. Throughout the years, three major issues have shaped BPW/USA’s legislative agenda: elimination of gender discrimination in employment, the principle of equal pay, and the need for a comprehensive equal rights amendment.
