IWF Bologna

IWF IWF IWF

The International Women's Forum is a non-profit organization founded in October 1998 in Bologna, Italy for English-speaking women of all nationalities. The group serves as a professional, cultural and social resource where members have the opportunity to exchange experiences, make professional contacts, find support and friendship, and speak English.

The diversity of our current membership reflects the founding spirit of the IWF with more than 100 members of all ages and professions originating from 20 different countries. In addition to general meetings held one Thursday a month, the IWF is comprised of several smaller groups organized according to member interests. Whether you have just landed in Bologna or have called it home for decades, the IWF offers an enriching experience for all members. More on the IWF

We've PUT the "F" in IWF

We’ve literally put the “forum” in International Women’s Forum. Members are in touch all the time via our online community. Read and post messages on a variety of topics ranging from health care to apartment hunting. Need a ride to an IWF event? Wondering instead how to get an Italian driver’s license? Check the forum! You can also use the private message function to send e-mail to other participants. While most discussions can be read by all, only members (both near and far!) can post messages. Visit the forums
