BWS magazine was launched in 2008 as a bi-monthly publication. From that grew a series of live events and awards to celebrate and empower women in business and to help tackle the gender gap in enterprise.


BWS was launched after the first financial crisis when there was a strong need for a new platform to promote Business Women in Scotland. BWS magazine celebrates, educates and rewards the best of Scotland’s women-led enterprises. With a keen eye for Scottish entrepreneurship and a passion for profiling female role models, BWS share stories of successes, challenges and highlight the benefit and rewards of business ownership. These are the stories that resonate the deepest with our readership and are the true sources of inspiration.

Your business can become a corporate member for £3,950 (plus VAT) a year and it is an excellent opportunity to promote your business. Corporate members can see their investment yield results by building relationships with other businesses to bring new skills and fresh ideas to their organisation. BWS corporate members receive a wide range of valuable benefits when they become part of #TeamBWS which will allow them to not only build their brand but invest in their most important asset – their people.

We look forward to welcoming you to Business Women Scotland!
