About Us

Asia Pacific Business Council for Women is a not-for-profit, membership based organisation aimed at:

  • Fostering business opportunities and cultural exchange for Australian businesswomen of the world
  • Promoting Australian Business and Professional Women working locally and focused globally
The Asia Pacific BCW was established in 1994 when a small group of women recognized there was a lack of mentoring and support available to South Australian professional and businesswomen. As these founding women originated from the Asia-Pacific region and were trading in this area, they used their links as a basis for forming the Asia Pacific BCW.  Our Council continues to have a special interest in the region, while recognizing that the global nature of trade and cultural exchange extends to other regions as well.

Our strengths and growth potential lies in the diversity of our members.  We encourage all women interested in expanding professional connections and international trade markets to help each other to develop new networks and skills in this area.

Members are from leading organisations as well as small to medium size enterprises, encompass all sectors of business and include many successful professionals and prominent businesswomen as well as quiet achievers.
