“The defining characteristic of this non-profit association is the diversity of our membership, as we welcome women of all ages, from all nations and backgrounds. It is fundamentally an organization of women helping women, through friendship, support and the transfer of knowledge from the experiences matured while living in our shared, adopted city.” (KK)
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.
