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 2021 - Thrive

2020 was not an easy year so BUWN committee members knew choosing an appropriate theme for 2021 would be challenging.  However looking at the resilience shown last year, and particularly how Bond staff and students diversified so quickly and positively, BUWN felt the overwhelming theme for 2021 was 'Thrive'. 

Throughout the turmoil of COVID-19 and its impact on our individual lives, we saw how many women adapted to our 'new normal'.  Through difficult times it's still essential to visualise possibilities more than limitations.  It is about having purpose, intention, affirmation and taking action towards becoming the best versions of ourselves.  Thriving means to grow vigorously; to flourish and to progress towards our goals despite the circumstances.  And that's what we've seen our BUWN community do.

This year we want to celebrate women who are doing wonderful things, the opportunities which will be created and relished, and the thriving group of supportive women in our flourishing BUWN community.

We are grateful for the support of our members in 2020 and look forward to another exceptional year for BUWN in 2021.
