Women on the Move: Volunteerism

Women on the Move, the eighth annual panel discussion hosted by The Business and Professional Women (BPW) of Bernardsville and Bernardsville Public Library, will take place on Wednesday, May 12 at 7:00 pm at the Library. Facilitated by Co-President Andrea Mastrobattista, this year’s panel will bring together a group of women who have made volunteerism a vital part of their lives and have been forever changed for the better as a result of this pivotal decision. This year’s panelists are Megan McDowell, the founder and president of Heartworks, a random acts of kindness organization; Marsha Bostick, who volunteers for Habitat for Humanity; Katie Meyler the founder of More Than Me, an organization based in Liberia that empowers underprivileged children; and Susan Dorward, a BPW member who volunteers for the group on the local, state, national and international level.

"We've covered many fascinating topics over the years with these panels," said Mastrobattista, "but because volunteerism is what BPW is all about, this year's theme is especially appropriate. It’s really awe-inspiring what women are accomplishing."

Join the speakers and BPW members for networking starting at 6:30 pm and, after the discussion, for a dessert reception, compliments of the Bernardsville BPW membership. There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested. Register online at and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the Library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
