Professional Networking Dinners

BBPW hosts business networking events September through June, with guest speakers addressing a variety of topics of interest to working women such as health and wellness, customer service, career management and work/life balance. In September, March and May, BBPW sponsors three special events – Scholarship Recipient recognition dinner, the Young Careerist Mentoring program, and Woman of Achievement Award dinner.

Woman of Achievement

Berkshire Business and Professional Women has been honoring a local woman with this award since 1965. All the proceeds from the Woman of Achievement dinner benefit the BBPW scholarship program, which provides annual career advancement scholarships to working women residing in Berkshire County.


Berkshire BPW annually awards career advancement scholarships to working women residing in Berkshire County. Scholarships may be used for tuition, books, child care, uniforms, or other related educational expenses.
