Speak Up!


I am a member of Cambridge Who's Who. I'll be interviewed by  the Host of Improve Every Year! at Womens Radio Show on Saturday 3/31 at 3 pm PST. My episode, "Destressing for Busy Women" will begin "Airing" on Friday April 13th at 3:00AM EDT at www.womensradio.com 

WomensRadio Editor in Chief, Pat Lynch, hosts Deborah L. Frett, BPW Foundation CEO, on Speak Up! Business and Professional Women’s Foundation (BPW) www.bpwfoundation.org 
BPW Foundation is a non profit research, educational and advocacy organization supporting all working women and their families. Founded in 1956, it was started by Business and Professional Women/USA, which was founded in 1919.


Message from the Executive Director
“BPW has been advancing the cause of working women since 1919, and BPW Foundation continues the legacy of Working Women Helping Women Work™.

• BPW Foundation was the first to focus its research and programs exclusively on women in the workforce.
• BPW Foundation was the first to elevate issues of women in non-traditional occupations.
• And BPW Foundation was the first to examine the domestic and workplace needs of women veterans as they transition from military to civilian life. The BPW Foundation’s work supporting women veterans is a natural out growth of its past efforts supporting and encouraging women in non-traditional careers including the military.” 

How many Members?
50,000 direct supporters

One of its programs/ initiatives is: Lift up the importance of Working Women Helping Women Work™. Mark your calendars for Equal Pay Day on April 17, 2012!

• BPW Foundation is a leader in supporting Equal Pay Day, which is held annually in April to signify the point into a year that a woman must work to earn what a man made the previous year. BPW prepares a toolkit for its Legacy Partners to use to promote the day in their communities.
• National Business Women’s Week® (NBWW) on Oct. 23-26, 2012, is a BPW Foundation Signature event that was started in 1928 and honors the contributions of working women and employers who support working women and their families. NBWW provides an opportunity to call attention to women entrepreneurs, facilitate discussions on the needs of working women, share information about successful workplace policies, and raise awareness of the resources available for working women in their communities. BPW Foundations has develop a tool kit for organizations wishing to participate in NBWW.
