From the Chair

We seek to be an inclusive network of women, and those who value and respect women. We aim to empower the women to connect and make a difference, instilling a sense of compassion, care and community as respected and valued members of the Bond Community. BUWN endeavours to achieve this by supporting and assisting women with their own development, as well as providing a forum to promote all causes for the betterment of women and families.

Most importantly, we celebrate women for all that they are and for all that they do. We know that Bond women already understand the importance of education as a means of empowering women, so an important part of our agenda is the provision of awareness raising and networking opportunities which enable our women to better fulfil their full potential.

BUWN endeavours to support and inspire each other by sharing our journeys, education and experiences. We encourage all members of the Bond community to join our membership.

Our website and Facebook site will provide a hub for the sharing of all of the interests of women from the Bond community, including local community events. We encourage you to provide us with feedback and forward information about any events that you would like to share.

BUWN Theme for 2020

Our theme of 'Courage' for 2019 was well portrayed by the inspiring and resilient speakers who led our various events throughout the year.  Our speakers presented thought-provoking, emotive, and powerful messages for BUWN members and the greater community, providing an expansive array of skills, knowledge, and empowerment for all.  BUWN is tremendously grateful for the contribution of all speakers and the inclusive community of our members.

BUWN's theme for 2020 is 'Joy'.  This year BUWN will explore how rather than being a distraction, joy can be empowering. 

Our first event of 2020 is the International Women's Day Cocktail Reception taking place on Thursday 12th March. We will take this opportunity to celebrate the women in our lives and acknowledge their strength, determination, and spirit. We look forward to showcasing the amazing women amongst us on this day.

We are grateful for the support of our members in 2019 and look forward to another exceptional year for BUWN in 2020.
