Canada has addressed many pressing social issues since the Business and Professional Women’s association (BPW) was first establish in 1930’s. However, as a country where diversity is greatly valued, we still have a long way to go.
BPW London aims to tackle one of the most prominent social issues facing Canadians – equal pay. Second vice-president of the local chapter, Karen Fuller explains how BPW is able to affect lasting change.
” If an issue comes up that we are aware of that has an impact on women, we have the ear of the provincial and federal government as far as writing resolutions. And we also have a seat on the United Nations.”
BPW London aims for education, awareness, mentorship, and advocacy.Karen encourages students to look into BPW’s young professionals committee.
