BPW Galway is delighted to announce details of the annual Candle Lighting Supper.

Members and their guets come together each year to participate in a special tribute to one of the world’s most influential organizations ‘the International Federation of Business and Professional Women’, uniting women all around the world. Although it’s members speak in many languages and live in countries with differing traditions they share the same determination and purpose ‘to share educate and give a voice’.

SHARE: Using knowledge and experience gained to help others

EDUCATE: Creating knowledge & educational opportunities

GIVE A VOICE: Offering a forum for women’s thoughts and opinions

The candle lighting celebrates the fellowship between all BPW members around the world and is held in each club worldwide in February of each year.
