USA National Presidents

We are forever grateful

The founding of the Business and Professional Women's organization marked an important moment in the history for working women in the United States. It embodied the will of women to overcome inequality, discrimination and injustice. Since 1919 these women have devoted their lives to furthering the mission of BPW. NFBPWC and our national membership will be forever grateful for their leadership.
