Dear IWF Member
We were so happy to see so many old and new faces at our IWF Kick-off Social Event in the beautiful cortile at Palazzo Marconi last Thursday, September 23! We’ve put together a collection of images from the evening to mark the event. Thank you to those who worked hard to make the night a success! All those who couldn’t be with us, please have a look at our calendar with upcoming events. We look forward to having you with us at the next occasion.
Save the Date for our next IWF Monthly Meeting on Thursday, October 21 which will be a Bologna walking tour guided by the incredible Anna Brini. Details to follow!
We have a lot of dynamic women in our membership and we are hoping to highlight the accomplishments and triumphs of our community to celebrate each other in a small but meaningful way. As a start we would like to call upon members to update or complete their membership profile in the membership directory with an email address and a short bio. We hope this will help us create a clearer and richer understanding of who we are together as an organisation. Please take a few minutes to tell us about yourself!
Diners Club – will have its first meeting for a lovely evening at Borgo Mameli on Tuesday, September 28 at 8.30pm. We are currently full for this event!
