BFWG Younger Member's Group

Younger Members' Group

The Younger Members’ Group was founded in 2020 to bring together BFWG members nationwide who are in their forties and under.

Life is all about the stages and phases of human, personal and career development that we travel through. In acknowledgement of this, BFWG has a group for members who are below the age of 40. This allows women who may be undertaking postgraduate study, building their carers, and juggling family commitments to come together in the spirit of friendship, to support each other. To facilitate this, informal meet ups are taking place in 2024, to offer opportunities for our younger members to grab a coffee, get to know each other, and discuss what matters to them.

While we have offered a buddy scheme in the past, this is currently under review and more detail about this will be shared at a future date. Our younger members also benefit from their access to speaker meetings, events, and our affiliation with Graduate Women International.
