Board Professionals BPF Finland (BPF) is a professional networking and training organization promoting increased diversity in boards and executive management.

We believe that introducing improved diversity among board members – in terms of gender, race, and age, among other factors – is of increasing importance to boards and to investors. Multiple studies have proven that this improves and develops future competitiveness and responsible decision-making.

We focus on influencing, communicating, and actively initiating discussion on issues relating to diversity, empowerment, and inclusion in businesses and also in society.

Our work aims to increase the number of women in boards and executive management, provide training in board and governance skills, and enable networking opportunities.
