April 11 - April Monthly Meeting

The April Monthly Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 11th at the Palazzina at the Centro delle Donne (via del Piombo, 5). In light of Earth Day being a key feature in April and given the recent mobilization of the world's youth to promote environmental action, this meeting aims to offer us a glimpse into how we can be a part of a community of responsible consumers; we will hear from Giovanni Notarangelo from Camilla- Emporio di Comunità, Bologna's first cooperative supermarket, committed to sustainable production. Social greetings will begin at 7pm over a light aperitivo followed by the meeting at 7:30pm. Following the event, we hope you will join us for a no-host aperitivo at Osteria della Fondazza (via Fondazza, 35).

IWF Bologna

is a social and professional network of English-speaking women

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
