In 2007 the BCCI established the Business Women Committee, which is the first of its kind to concern itself with issues pertaining to businesswomen at the level of commercial and industrial chambers in Palestine. The initiative aims to follow up on businesswomen issues, develop their skills and enhance their presence and activity within the BCCI and in the business world. The committee succeeded in participating in a number of conferences and activities for women in business in and outside Palestine. In 2011, the committee's efforts culminated in the election of the first businesswomen for the BCCI's board of director's membership in a fair election process; to be the first elected businesswomen in the boards of directors of all chambers in Palestine.
Initially, the committee included businesswomen formally registered in the BCCI's membership. Later, the vision and mission of the committee was expanded for the benefit of a wider segment of women in Bethlehem by targeting the informal businesswomen (craftswomen) and female entrepreneurs of very small businesses; fostering the social responsibility of the BCCI.
