Providing resources and a powerful network for women* living in Vienna, Austria.
Voices from our community
WoV is a community effort to make the city belong to us and vice versa. WoV is to encounter and intersect. WoV is to ask whatever you want. WoV is the fire starter of a feeling that has continuity and becomes a habit. Every city should have a place to meet like WoV has given us.
For me, Women of Vienna is so much more than an online community. It is a bond between smart, caring, brave and simply wonderful women. It is also a place where most of my friendships in this city were born. As challenging as it can be to move to a new country, new city, having a community of women who inspire you makes all the difference – it made me grow and helped me find my place in this city. Thank you, WoV.
Networking groups is an efficient way to meet valuable contacts and gain ideas. WoV provides an important and dynamic venue for international women to support each other and exchange information in every aspects and steps of life in Vienna. It’s just great to be part of it.
I just wanted to say that WoV really changed my life for the better, all sappiness aside. I joined the community at the urging of a really good friend who moved back to the USA in 2016. I was really sad that one of my best friends was no longer in Vienna, but since I joined WoV and started attending Book Club meetings, I have met so many cool ladies and I have more friends than ever. I also became involved in some musical projects such as the Women’s International Choir, which was born from a post on WoV. It’s such a great place to get answers and find like-minded people.
For me as an Austrian, Women of Vienna was and still is a place, where I am able to broaden my horizon in various aspects such as cultural exchange and understanding, language and its facets, world history and society, as well as career possibilities and professional networking. I love being part of a strong community, where not only new (international) friendships form, but where you can ask a total stranger for help without having second thoughts. It’s possible to learn a lot of new things thanks to all the great subgroups (STEM is awesome!) and talks. And not to forget: monthly brunches for yummy food adventures throughout the city! ♡
