About BWN

  • Are you about to move to Barcelona and want to learn more about the city?
  • Have you just arrived and would like to make friends or establish professional contacts?
  • Are you settling in and looking for support to help you get over the first hurdles?
  • Or, have you been here a while and want to share experiences with multicultural women?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you're in the right place!  Barcelona Women’s Network, or BWN for short. What started in 1998 as a small group of twelve friends has by now grown into a formidable international network of over 250 members (and counting…).

Forming a group of culturally curious women, we come from over 30 countries, have all kinds of backgrounds, and enjoy the most diverse set of interests you can imagine. But in spite (or because?) of all our differences, we all come together to have fun and do good. And above all, we all share a common love for the city and the world alike.

Barcelona is at once cosmopolitan and Catalan, modern and traditionalist, bohemian and bourgeois, international and local, personal and professional, and many things more. And so are we!

What our members say:

"How different and boring would my life have been without the BWN! I moved to Barcelona in 2000, which changed my life completely. Coming here I realized that nobody spoke english and in those days I did not speak spanish. All of a sudden I found myself isolated at home for the first time in my life. My husband constantly travelling, my kids little and no job to meet new people. Over my good friend I got in touch with the BWN and my life changed. I met women from all over the world, I started to make friendships and invited other women to participate. As I started my own business from working at home in those days I had besides the kids and work enough time to organize excursions and events myself, participating in the wellcome commitee and inviting new members (also spanish ladies) to join the group."
