What Our Members Say…
PWG was instrumental in making Basel my new home. I have always been hesitant to join a women organization. In the case of PWG I was definitely wrong. I met so many great women and was able to use PWG as a starting base for creatiny the life I have today. Thanks to all of you!
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!

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 in the same situation. The group meets twice a month and hosts workshops to help with the search.
