Who we are
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 we set our sights on a future characterised by international cooperation, high quality development opportunities, and a growing membership of dynamic, talented women.
The PWN online magazine is your forum for exchanging ideas and opinions, for presenting insights as well as expertise gained both in your personal and your professional life.
The members of PWN Vienna are a group of astounding women, so we invite you all to consider contributing to this issue: sharing stories will prove both inspirational as well as encouraging, for writers as well as readers.
