Welcome to the International Women's Club Eindhoven!

Are you new to Eindhoven and would you like to meet women from all over the world? The IWCE may be just the social club you are looking for!

We are a social club for international women living in the Eindhoven area. Through our daytime and evening activities IWCE promotes networking and friendship between English speaking women from many different countries. Aside from our monthly general meetings featuring guest speakers, workshops and outings, IWCE members are also welcome to join Special Interest Groups (SIGs) — one of our most attractive characteristics. These groups meet during the day or evening to share their interests and passions. Our SIGs range widely from Choir to Film Group, Book Clubs to Italian Conversation, Gourmet Club, Yoga Class and so on (check the Activities and Groups to learn more).

To help our members feel at home, we have Area Representatives in each area of the city of Eindhoven and in the surroundings. An Area Rep is a contact point for the club members in her area. She welcomes the new members, introduces them to the other members in the same area, and invites them to get together regularly. Area Reps can also answer any practical questions a member might have.

While the IWCE as an organisation provides activities and support to its members, it also gives back to the wider community. Fundraising efforts, such as bake sales, raffles and the annual Winter Market, enable us to make donations. Once a year, members are invited to nominate their chosen organisation to be voted the IWCE's charity of that year. Also, we invite guest speakers from various charitable organisations to present themselves and inform us about their goals and the ways members can give support.
