zz Speakers

General membership luncheon meetings feature a keynote presentation that underscores one or more of BPW’s three characteristic pillars – personal, professional and political. We strive to maintain a balance of speakers whose topics or life stories are geared towards working women and align with BPW’s legislative platform (equality for all including the Equal Rights Amendment; economic equity, opportunity and self-sufficiency; safe workplaces; health care; and the environment).

To be considered as a speaker for an upcoming meeting, please contact Christine Weigle, 1st Vice President and Program Chair.
