The International Women of Istanbul (IWI) – “From Women For Women” - is a non-profit social organisation managed by volunteers, with a membership of women from many different countries and backgrounds. Our mission is to provide a support network for international women living in and around Istanbul; charitable support for selected non-profit organisations in our community; and business networking opportunities for our members and local businesses related to women.
IWI achieves this in a variety of ways:
In accordance with Turkish Law, we have a legal office address and employ a lawyer and an accountant. Our books and decisions are approved by the Board of Controllers during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) which takes place in May. All net proceeds are donated the IWI Social Responsibility Fund which supports to non-profit organisations in Turkey.
Istanbul of thirty, twenty, ten and even five years ago was a very different place to what we see today.
Although the organisation has evolved over the years IWI is still here to support our members; support our community; and support our business partners.
