Greetings from the International Women's Association of Graz, Austria

We organize events that bring together English-speaking women to promote cross-cultural respect and provide friendship and support.

Who are the women of the IWA?

IWA members are part of a registered non-profit, non-political and self-supporting club which was established in 1994 to unite English-speaking women who live in and near Graz. The club is administered by volunteers elected by the membership. Through its membership in Open Door, IWA is linked to international women’s associations around the world.

What We Do

The IWA organizes events including:


… to promote cross-cultural respect and provide friendship and support.


We are also committed to raising funds and providing assistance to help local charitable organisations.


IWA members can connect with other international women around the world through Open Door and network with other local organisations that support our members and the IWA’s aims and objectives.
