At PWG, we value and depend on the engagement of our volunteers. We only exist through the commitment, determination, and creativity of our members. It is volunteers who, with every little step, turn PWG’s Vision into reality. The women of PWG do this because, in some aspect or another, they find that altruistic engagement is a rewarding one.
Our volunteer members work in one of Basel’s prime city center venues – the beautiful historic Lohnhof. Above Barfüsserplatz, the location is safe and easy to reach by public transportation.
Our leadership committee members are professional and caring. Volunteers are part of supportive teams and have interesting colleagues to share the work load with. Proud to be a membership funded organization, the annual budget always provides for adequate equipment, material and resources, as well as the occasional ‘dream’ item or project.
Volunteering is a social activity through which individuals are appreciated and earn admiration. At PWG, this can be achieved at a personal level while working with diverse women in a multi-cultural environment (come make friends!), and at a professional level by actively collaborating with women of varied professions and networks. Meet, Share, and Connect with other members faster and more intensively than through regular events. You will find that PWG has a welcoming culture that nurtures a special feeling of being at home.
