GOALS of BPW International Member Projects and Experts

  • Taking responsibility for one’s own project means practicing leadership and “learning by doing” which provides the best training for personal empowerment. “Learning by doing” challenges and develops all kinds of competences, especially crucial emotional competences. A truly strong and self-confident woman is the most powerful change agent for gender equality.
  • Offering our members a platform where they can try out new ideas works like an incubator which facilitates innovation, creativity and the discovery of new paths.
  • It is imperative that BPW can show its numerous and very diverse performances. It stimulates and motivates active women and over all, founders and sponsors can experience the power of BPW.

We thank you for your contribution


On behalf of the PILOT Team

The number of club & federation projects is expected to grow as many countries and clubs have not registered their projects (which are however reported by the country and regional coordinators in their annual reports).

Digital PILOT Meeting

Modern digital technique ”Zoom” used at PILOT meetings. 

For the second time Ursula Schmid, PILOT Webmaster, attended the PILOT meeting by “Zoom”, which means on a mobile screen. It was as if she would sit at the table, an impressive experience with great potential for our BPW work.
