who we are

history

in 1919 While mobilizing for World War I, the U.S. Government recognized the need for a cohesive group to coordinate identification of women’s available skills and experience. A Women’s War Council, financed through a federal grant, was established by the War Department to organize the resources of professional women. The National Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs was founded on July 15, 1919. The organization later filed to “do business as” (dba) Business and Professional Women/USA (BPW/USA). Throughout the years, three major issues shaped BPW/USA’s legislative agenda: elimination of sex discrimination in employment, the principle of equal pay, and the need for a comprehensive equal rights amendment.

today

Our local Business and Professional Women's Club was established in 1930. President Kate Sitton paved the way for business women throughout Pulaski and surrounding counties to be treated as equals in the workplace. Focusing on equal pay, equal rights and the elimination of sex discrimination were just the beginning. Somerset BPW also has provided scholarships to non-traditional, secondary education students and given back to other local organizaitions that promote quality and equality of life.


This year, our club will be turning 93 years old!

Networking

Join us on the 4th Thursday of every ​month for a chance to network with a ​strong group of business professionals ​and entrepreneurial women. Our goal ​is to provide support and resources to ​help support your professional goals ​while making lifelong friends.

Giving Back

Our passion to give back is what makes ​us a truly community-driven club. Every ​year, we award 2 scholarships to women ​in need who are pursuing higher ​education. The Sally Murphy and Martha ​Fulcher Estep Scholarships are available ​through Somerset Community ​College.

Supporting Local

We love supporting our local ​communities by speaking at local ​events, volunteering, and getting ​involved in community action. Staying ​connected is what helps our community ​grow and raises up the next generation ​of women business leaders.
