PWN Geneva-Lausanne is the 26th chapter of the vibrant and dynamic global Federation “Professional Women’s Network” which was initially founded in Paris in 2003 and has since expanded across Europe, South America, and the Middle East. The global objective of the PWN across cities is to provide women with the tools, network and support resources they need to successfully assume leadership positions in business. At PWN Geneva-Lausanne, we aim to share knowledge across our network, notably through our participation in European, American, and global initiatives.
On an international scale the PWN combines a sophisticated on-line networking platform (linking thousands of business women and men to our communities), with global social media activities; our local programs offer more than 600 local events for our members each year.

As Hillary Clinton observed during a recent discussion in London on barriers to women’s leadership: “Most promotion networks still heavily favour men.” Through many conversations on confidence with working women, one of the recurring threads on successful support systems has been the hidden art of sponsorship. Sponsorship has superpower capabilities to cut through established patterns of systemic and unconscious gender bias.
