Welcome to the ZIWC!
As Viola Davis said, “When women support women, incredible things can happen.” But finding women to connect with can sometimes be a challenge. Which is why the Zug International Women’s Club was founded in 1967: to provide friendship, community and support to women in Canton Zug and beyond. As a locally-based social and professional network we have made it our mission to promote both social and professional networking as well as encouraging the free exchange of information and resources among our members. We know that connection and community are two essential elements in any woman’s life, so whether you are new in Switzerland, returning after an absence or just looking to meet new people the club can be your point of contact for resources, friends and fun.
Guided by a board of 13 elected members, our non-political and non-religious nonprofit organization provides weekly activities, seasonal events, visits to fascinating locations, monthly coffees for new members, and special projects in the greater community. The club also facilitates numerous specialized Interest Groups, language conversation sessions, monthly lunches, online webinars and more. Our events also take place at any time of day so you can find something to fit your schedule, whatever it might be. And if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, you can share your passion by creating a group or event yourself.
Our membership is made up of over 300 women from 40 different countries with a variety of different backgrounds, professions and lifestyles that add a cosmopolitan vitality to all our gatherings. And while English is our official language, many others are spoken by our membership so there is no need to worry about your proficiency. Ranging in age from 25 to 80, the ladies of the ZIWC have a rich variety of perspectives and great deal of experience to share, so there is no shortage of interesting things to learn about and conversations to have.
