Our mission

To provide personal and professional growth opportunities and to promote equity for North Carolina women in the workplace.


BPW/NC Federation Objectives:

  • To elevate the standards of women in business and in the professions.

  • To promote the interest of business and professional women.

  • To bring about a spirit of cooperation among women of the United States.

  • To extend opportunities to business and professional women through education along the lines of industrial, scientific, and vocational activities.

Our legislative agenda: elimination of sex discrimination in employment, the principle of equal pay, and the need for a comprehensive equal rights amendment. BPW works to achieve full equity for all women in education, government, business and the community.

  • Are you a working woman who sees inequity in your workplace and wants your daughters and nieces to have it better?

  • Are you a business owner who has been told repeatedly that your woman-owned business is just a hobby? 
  • Are you a woman who cares about equality for yourself and your sisters everywhere?
