The PWA is a non-profit networking organization that supports and promotes the interests of professional women of different nationalities, from diverse cultural environments. We believe in sharing information, ideas and resources to create mutual opportunities and since 1992 PWA provides a “friendly forum” for women who want to expand their world for personal and professional growth.

We welcome women from various professions at different levels and from different sectors. We meet on the 1st Wednesday of the month (September-June) for cocktails dedicated to networking and on 3rd Wednesday for conferences conducted by international speakers. In addition, we carry out seminars on women’s empowerment, and organize events of cultural interest and social development.

Our History

Our Mission

PWA-Professional Women’s Association – “the People We Are” is an International hub in the heart of Rome where ideas and values, tradition and innovation, diversity, culture and professionalism meet and intersect. On our journey into the future our travel companions are respect, ethics, and a sense of social responsibility.

PWA is for women and about women. As clear vision and hard work are essential for accomplishing challenging goals, the process is hardly complete without recognition and celebration of success. PWA annual awards publicly acknowledge via Nominations those members who have dedicated their writing skills to our Newsletter, given their time, effort and heart to bringing in more members, informing others about PWA initiatives, or contributing to how PWA is seen by the community by procuring a sponsor. Nominations are awarded to women who’ve distinguished themselves in particular professional skills important to the growth and reputation of PWA.

The most important nomination, “Woman of the Year” is elected by members in May. The winner receives a gift invitation to our June Party, a cake in her name celebrating her sweet victory, a spotlight article in the Newsletter and a gift membership for the following year, including two free guests to each conference during that year.
Helping to expand our network of members, partners or sponsors, contributing your time and efforts by participating in PWA events and activities are all synonyms of determination, passion and persistence which will not go unnoticed. All you have to do is “be a part of it!”
