Frequently asked questions

BPN is a 501C3 organization focused on helping career and business professionals create pathways for career opportunities and financial growth. We are guided in three clear objectives: (1)  increase the number of our professionals in leadership roles and high-skilled roles, (2) assist our small business owners’ within the network to create high-skilled roles and match them to talent; and (3) improve the financial education of all our professionals to achieve and maintain financial security for generations.

Yes, we don’t discriminate. We mean it. We operate much like a women-only organization. While men are welcomed, the focus will remain on the women and their issues. Same applies with us.
