Welcome to PWN Vienna

PWN Vienna is one part of the PWN Global family of networks. We are a volunteer-led organization comprised of over 100 members of 35 different nationalities and open to women of all sectors and industries.

Originally established as the Women’s Career Network of Vienna in 1993, WCN grew over the years to become the city’s premier English-speaking association for professional women. Now as PWN Vienna (since 2015), we set our sights on a future characterised by international cooperation, high quality development opportunities, and a growing membership of dynamic, talented women.
