with women from all over the world. Become a part of our PWG groups: our Job Hunt Support Group encourages job seekers in their pursuit, and our Women Entrepreneurs group supports women who turned their passion into a business. Forge new friendships and explore new opportunities.
We’re a not-for-profit organization governed by a committee of volunteers. The committee members coordinate all PWG activities and assist members. We are here to answer any questions you may have about our organization.
The Women Entrepreneurs of PWG bring together women who have one important thing in common: they are either running their own businesses or are seriously interested in doing so. We have a fantastic variety of enterprises among our group, and although our business ventures may be diverse, we share many of the same challenges and experiences as we develop.
Job Hunt Support Group
If you are currently transitioning between jobs, the PWG Job Hunt Group is a great place to meet and share resources and experiences with other women who are also exploring new employment opportunities. The group meets twice a month and hosts workshops to help those with their search.

What Our Members Say…
PWG gives me the anchor that I am woman as well (not only professional) and being part of a wonderful group cheers me up!
PWG gave me inspiration and support to start my own business
I love the community of women supporting and inspiring each other. The PWG was my springboard to establish my professional life in Basel.
PWG is a place for sharing and helping a multinational group of women with very different backgrounds and destinies (mostly determined by their partners/husbands jobs) to help them set-foot, understand and take part of the Swiss way of working habits and doing business.
Great opportunity to get involved and develop, to get inspired and to move on in a certain direction!
I have loved seeing how PWG has grown from a simple wine + cheese party 25 years ago into a group of dynamic, talented, kind and generous women from all over the world. Cheers!
PWG is a place where I find like-minded women that communicate in English in Basel. WE discuss our professional lives, family and personal options and find support to move to the next step.
