BPW - What's In It For You?

It doesn't matter if you're just starting out or building your career. Today's professional woman needs all the help she can get - assistance in developing usable skills, support in creating an equitable workplace, encouragement in attaining that next level on the road to success. The Louisiana Federation of Business and Professional Women is here to help women advance their careers or build businesses.  That's what BPW Louisiana is all about.

Monroe-West Monroe Business and Professional Women is affiliated with BPW/LA, the Louisiana Federation of Business and Professional Women - an alliance of diverse individuals, dedicated to improving the professional, personal, economic and educational outlook of women.  We do everything we can to help working women - like you - be successful in all aspects of their lives.

The Monroe-West Monroe Local Organization was formed in 1920, so we are an established group of women business professionals in the Monroe-West Monroe area.  BPW Louisiana has been around since 1919, and was one of the founding states of BPW/USA.  Since the 2009 merger of BPW/USA and BPW Foundation, BPW Foundation is much more streamlined and better focused on helping women in the workplace.  The Louisiana Federation of BPW is in a better position to focus on the working women of Louisiana.
