The Federation of Business and Professional Women. BPW SPAIN works to promote sisterhood, solidarity and the professional empowerment of Professionals and Business Women. It enables professional potential and leadership, supports women to reach decision-making positions, and lobbies to promote equal opportunities.
It is guided by the Principles for empowerment of Women established by UN Women.
We are an umbrella organization of the BPW clubs in Spain, and our hallmark is to function as a non-profit, non-racist, non-sectarian and non-partisan association.
Currently it encompasses a number of Associations of business, professional and executive women, united by the principles of equal opportunities at the professional level, in business, politics and society.
Our main objective is to develop women's leadership worldwide. This gives us the opportunity to share experiences, acquire knowledge of different cultures, and share emotions with business, professional women as well as entrepreneurial women from all over the world.
