Why join the IWCE?
To Form Friendships
The IWCE provides the opportunity for expatriates, foreigners and returning Dutch ladies to establish friendships. Monthly meetings and social events put you in touch with women living in Eindhoven and the Eindhoven Region.
Moving provides new challenges. The IWCE gives you an opportunity to meet with women in similar situations. We can offer support and learn from each other and socializing in the process. Pur members are from many countries, nationalities, walks of life.
The Dutch lifestyle
Although the IWCE is for foreigners, our intent is not to shut ourselves away from the local culture, but rather to help each other adapt and gain a better understanding of the Dutch lifestyle and mentality. That's why we encourage returning Dutch ladies to become members too.
Purpose of the Club
The primary goal of the club is to assist the expatriate, foreign & returning Dutch ladies, to adjust to life in the Netherlands and to provide an atmosphere of friendship and support. This purpose is non-denominational, non-political and non-commercial in nature.
Get a taste of who we are by attending one of our members meetings as a guest
If you are an international woman —or a Dutch woman who has returned to the Eindhoven area from another country in the past two years— you are cordially invited to attend one of the IWCE's members meetings as a guest.
