Abstract
When developing professional knowledge and abilities that can impact career success there are several aspects that need to be considered. One of the first is whether or not that the professional organization that one is working for is a stepping stone in the right direction for success. Another is to determine whether or not the knowledge one learns will be helpful when moving on to another organization.

When developing professional knowledge and abilities that can impact career success there are several aspects that need to be considered. One of the first is whether or not that the professional organization that one is working for is a stepping stone in the right direction for success. Another is to determine whether or not the knowledge one learns will be helpful when moving on to another organization. One of the final steps is to learn additional abilities that will help when one either moves up within the organization or moves on to another organization.
Business and Professional Women??™s (BPW) Foundation is partnering to create a successful workplace for women by focusing on issues that impact women, their families, and employers. Successful Workplaces are any workplaces that embrace and practice diversity, equity, and work-life balances. Through ground breaking research and a unique role as a convener of employers and employees, BPW Foundation strives to redefine today??™s workplace. (BPW 2009)
Working for an organization like this would open my eyes about what I could expect when working in a professional setting. I have currently not worked in the professional field. I have only held jobs in the retail side of the job market. Knowing how women want to be treated, need to be treated, and need to be respected in order to do their jobs correctly is important to every organization or work place. Abilities needed for working for this organization would be an understanding of how women should be treated equally. Knowing the laws that govern equality for everyone within the organization, keeping track of what laws are being broken within the workplace, knowing when to speak up and knowing when to keep my mouth shut. It should not matter that a women is new to the organization she should be treated the same way as her counterpoint.
When moving on within the organization I would need to make sure that the ideas and goals of BPW Foundation remains on my goals as well, the more organizations that know that they must treat women the same as they treat men, the better the workplace will be. Knowing that I have the ability to change the workplace for future women for years to come would make me love my job within this organization. I do believe if I could get on with this organization I would not want to leave, because we all want to do what we can for the workplace as a whole and to hold such a powerful position would enable me to help other women succeed in the professional world.
