The Berlin International Women’s Club (BIWC) was founded in 1992 after the fall of the Berlin Wall when the international community in Berlin was growing. The club’s language is English. We unite women from different cultures and who speak many different languages. We are proud that our current 262 members come from 49 different nations. We strive to foster mutual understanding and tolerance through cultural exchange, friendship and support. We have 30 different activity groups which cater for every interest and taste.
The BIWC is a member of the “Open Door Association”, an international network of women’s clubs. Currently there are 80 International Women’s Associations in 40 countries, which ‘open their doors to each other’, promoting international understanding and good will.
Becoming a member of BIWC means sharing our world of vivid cultural and social exchange and developing international friendships in the interesting, diverse community of Berlin.
BIWC at the AVON WOMEN’S RUN 2016
What a great event!
Twenty-two members of the BIWC had a lot of fun walking the 5km distance at this year’s event on May 21, together with more than 15,000 other ladies. The weather was just perfect so everybody was happy. We’re proud that we all managed to cross the finishing line and we’re glad that we made a contribution to the Berliner Krebsgesellschaft e.V. which supports women suffering from breast cancer with part of the participation fees.
We enjoyed it so much that most of us are planning to participate again in 2017.
Thank you, Daniela, the Club’s PR Officer, for organising BIWC’s participation.
