Dear BPW members – don’t forget!
On April 1st at 6pm at City Hall, Bozeman BPW and the City of Bozeman will commemorate Equal Pay Day and discuss solutions to the gender pay gap on a local level! Please come in solidarity and wear red!

Bozeman BPW was a long time sponsor of this annual workshop for middle school girls encouraging them to take math and science to have more career opportunities. Several of our members in the past were presenters and Pat Simmons was a previous Chair of the organization. Here is a link to an article that they are seeking presenters with a due date of January 18.
