The International Women’s Club (IWC) of St Petersburg is a club for expatriate women and men living in St Petersburg. It was founded in 1986 and is comprised primarily of foreigners, with a small Russian membership.
The IWC is first and foremost a social club; our primary objective is to provide support and friendship to expats living in St Petersburg. For many people moving to and living in Russia can be challenging and confusing. We do what we can to alleviate this stress by providing a network of women and men in a similar situation and, even better, ones who have been through the newcomer's shock and have valuable tips on how to embrace and enjoy this adventure.
We also contribute to the community in which we live by raising funds for various St Petersburg based charity organisations.
