As one of the largest womenâs clubs in town, the International Womenâs Club of Moscow is well known in the local expat community. Since 1978 the Club organizes various activities to promote friendship and to further cultural exchange among women of all nationalities residing in Russiaâs capital. Men have been able to join for a couple of years now. A second goal of the IWC is to raise funds to support local charity projects, both financially and by providing in-kind aid and volunteers.
Every September, the IWC starts a new season and in 2015/2016 the Club will continue to organize its Coffee Mornings, Meet & Greet gatherings and Professional Womenâs Evenings. Thanks to the commitment of numerous volunteers a vast range of Interest Groups will offer IWC members the opportunity to continue their hobbies while abroad or to discover new interests, ranging from cooking classes and sports to museum visits. The Winter Bazaar and the Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball are the two main charity fundraising events that the IWC organizes. The Radisson Slavyanskaya Hotel will host the 2015 Winter Bazaar on Saturday, November 28 and the 2016 Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball will be the 20th edition of this event, an anniversary that will not go by unnoticed.
Even though newcomers can join the IWC at any time, the September Meet & Greet is traditionally the largest gathering for Membership registration and the first possibility to sign up for the Interest Groups. The other Meet & Greets of 2015/2016 will surely be exciting as well, since the IWC continues to look for interesting venues as we speak. We are very glad to give you a sneak preview: the Chinese embassy has generously offered to host a Meet & Greet in the coming season!
