Why I am Part of BPW
This organization has had an incredible impact in how I see and interact with the world. It is truly an organization with a purpose bigger than you can imagine until you are involved, and one that I encourage all I meet to join. I joined it because it had a larger purpose ie focused on building community through education and advocacy and elevating women's profile. In particular I have appreciated its role in bringing the critical role of women in politics to the forefront. I am not one to join an organization solely based on socializing - I need to bring my passion to issues and change - that is why BPW.
