PWN Paris is a branch of PWN Global. We are a cross-sectoral networking, advocacy, information and training forum for management-level women with an international outlook. The mission of the association – which is run by a group of dynamic women, all volunteers – is to promote the professional progress of women and give them the tools, networks and skills they need to assume leadership roles.

We offer you a home, a place to learn from like-minded individuals; develop new skills (via our tried and tested volunteering programme), air your professional concerns and frustrations and find solutions! Become a member of the PWN Global community and you can:

Access a ready-built support network that will help you achieve your professional aspirations

Learn from a wealth of practical advice on how to deal with inequality in the workplace

Become a Corporate Partner and access in-depth knowledge that will support your organisation in putting gender balance at the very core of your operations.

Connect, share, learn, advance – yourself and the world!

PWN Geneva-Lausanne is the 26th chapter of a vibrant and dynamic global federation of professional networks which has its founding roots in Europe. Our common objective across cities is to provide women with the tools, networks and support resources they need to assume leadership positions. We aim to share knowledge across our networks, and are participating in several Europe-wide, US and global initiatives. We combine a sophisticated online networking platform, linking thousands business women and men to our communities, social media links and on the ground programs and events - more than 600 per year.

Who are our members?

A group of confident, constructive and very international professional women who delight in all the aspects of today’s opportunities – personal, professional and familial. We aim to learn from each other the ins and outs of the world of work and maximise our recognised potential and impact. We are 50% of the talent pool and 50% of the market – let’s wield our growing impact wisely.

Our members are senior-level, international business women, working in corporations or the public sector or entrepreneurs who have launched their own companies.


Multilingual and multicultural, having lived and/or worked in more than one country. Comfortable in English and the local network language, as our events may be in either language.


Having held positions of responsibility, either in the corporate world or the public sector, often in several countries, or as the founder of her own business. Most will hold a graduate degree from a leading school or university.


Refers to the sphere which is of relevance to our members: the world of business, whether a major multinational, a mid-sized company working at the regional level or small start-up.
