Welcome to ZIWA.
Founded in 1985 by 6 women living in Zurich, our association has now grown to include 500 members, representing 48 countries. We are proud of our rich cultural diversity providing an excellent opportunity for our members to network and develop friendships. As volunteers we work together to organise special events and with over 60 activity groups our talented members offer a wealth of diverse, fun and thought provoking interest groups.
Affiliated with Open Door, a federation of worldwide clubs, we welcome other International Women’s Associations and their members. There are currently 68 clubs registered in 35 countries. Open Door has enabled us to provide information for members on the move and to introduce new members to ZIWA.
We are a non-profit all-volunteer organisation with no religious or political affiliations. The ZIWA Executive Board is voted in annually and our Constitution was drafted in adherence to the Swiss Civil Code, which governs Vereins in Switzerland.
If you are new to Zürich or have lived here for a long time, a warm welcome awaits you. Come and meet us at our regular get-togethers. These are two weekly coffee meet-ups, commonly referred to here in Zurich as “Stammtisch”. Have a look at our Home page or contact us directly at email@example.com to get more information and the location of our two Stammtisch meetings.
We look forward to welcoming you.
