Young BPW is the information network for the next generation of leaders who are BPW members aged 35 years and under. The purpose of the network is to give this group of young women the support and encouragement of like-minded women. It enables personal development, particularly in leadership, by giving them empowerment and exposure to a national and international networking platform. Check out some of the happenings on the Young BPW NZ Facebook page.
