Dream. Rise. Lead.

Welcome to the official blog of International Association of Women (IAW).


As the saying goes, ”Women hold up half the sky.” However, although the number of women in the United States workforce has doubled since 1970, women are still underrepresented in leadership roles, and in salaries.

The International Association of Women (IAW) is a global in-person and online professional networking platform that provides over 900,000 women with the forum, education, and services to thrive in an interconnected world.

IAW members have diverse backgrounds, beliefs, perspectives, and lifestyles, but with one common bond—their ability to succeed. Through over 100 local chapters and via in-person and virtual events, our community empowers each member to realize their dreams, acquire the connections and knowledge needed to rise, and helps them build better work–life integration and the confidence that is vital to lead.

Founded in Chicago in 2017, IAW is a division of Professional Diversity Network, Inc. (NASDAQ: IPDN), an online network tailored to providing diverse professionals in the United States with access to employment opportunities.
