Who we are 

The Bentley Women’s Network (BWN) builds and utilizes an established network of female business professionals and peers to empower Bentley's future businesswomen.

What we do

The goals of the Bentley Women’s Network (BWN) are to create a network among highly successful college women, develop our member's professional and leadership skills, and provide opportunities to address the needs and concerns of the community and our world.
