One of the unique features of BWN is that we are ACTIVE supporters of our Howard County community. Not only do our members support each other as women in the business world, but we also harness the collective power of our membership to support the vital service work of various local organizations.

This month help us support Packaged for Success' 11th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive. Since 2007, this annual drive has collected and delivered 3,895 purses to 49 organizations that support teen girls in group homes, foster care, and homeless shelters. This allows the girls to have basic necessities and something of their own that can be used again and again.

During our November 15 meeting, we will be collecting gently used purses (totes and other handbags) filled with new personal hygiene items for teen girls in foster homes, group homes, and homeless shelters. All donations will be delivered before Christmas Day.

ackaged for Success is located in Columbia MD and will be collecting items from November 1, 2017 – December 4, 2017. There is a Purse Packing Party December 9, 2017.

BWN began in 1979 as 'The Women's Network' with the goal of providing an informal networking setting for women. In 1992, the group refocused to provide a more formal networking organization and incorporated in November of that year.

A volunteer board of directors runs BWN, which has nearly 200 members representing large and small businesses, non-profits, government and private organizations. Although most members live or work in Howard County, individuals from all over the Baltimore/ Washington Corridor area attend monthly meetings.
