BWH Young Professionals (YP) Group

Mission Statement

The BWH Young Professionals (BWHYP) group is devoted to improving the recruitment, retention and engagement of "young" or early-career professionals.

Who Can Join?

While our programs are targeted to meet the unique needs of professionals ages 21-35, all BWH employees are welcome. 

Please sign up online to receive our email updates.

Our recent "Millennials in the Workplace" panel was a huge success, drawing more than 80 in-person attendees and 140 over webcast. Listen to a recording of the session - Millennials in the Workplace (only available through the Partners network).

What Do We Do?

In line with our mission, we provide professional development resources to young professionals, work to improve policies and procedures, and host events to foster a sense of community, including:

  • Professional development events, including workshops on how to find and apply for jobs; panel presentations by industry leaders; and our very popular "Coffee With" series, in which we arrange exclusive access for young professionals to meet with executive leaders at the hospital in small-group settings, for informal Q&A and a chance to ask career-related questions over coffee
  • Networking events like speed networking, social events, and more
  • Sports and special interests events, including activities like kickball, pottery painting, sports leagues and game nights
  • Community service events, including canned food drives; volunteering at races, galas, silent auctions, and more with diverse local community partners
