General Information
Description of AgencyBusiness and Professional Women’s Foundation (BPW Foundation) was the first foundation dedicated to conducting research and providing information solely about working women. Since then, we have partnered with employers to create successful workplaces that embrace and practice diversity, equity and work-life balance convening employers, working women and policymakers to promote systemic workplace change.

Areas of research include women and non traditional jobs, Gen Y women and women’s use and access to the internet. In 2007 BPW Foundation conducted the first research on women veteran’s transition to civilian careers and in 2010, hosted a National Summit, Joining Forces for Women Veterans to identify the challenges women veterans face. Through information gathered at the summit, the need for mentors was identified and in 2012 BPW Foundation launched Joining Forces for Women Veterans and Military Spouses Mentoring Plus a program recognized by the White House Joining Forces Military Family initiative. The mentoring program is built on our legacy of working women helping women work.

BPW Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) research and education organization. The work of BPW Foundation supports workforce development programs and workplace policies that recognize the diverse needs of working women, communities and businesses.
