We are a social group with a social purpose.

Our Story

20th anniversary logo
Before the BWN became the BWN, it was a small, informal gathering of expat women meeting in someone’s living room for coffee and friendly conversation. Although we’ve upsized our meeting space and our mission since then, we haven’t downsized the friendly.

Our Social Purpose - Supporting Local Charities


Every two years, the Barcelona Women’s Network selects two organizations to support through financial contributions and with the time, talents and expertise of our membership.

We are delighted to lend our support to these two organizations during the 2018-2020 membership years. Avismón & Associacio Assistencia Dones Agredides Sexualment

Business Networking

BUSINESS JUICE mixes friendly networking with short, smart talks for Barcelona’s expat ‘preneurs (entre, micro, solo, budding). This event features a thought-provoking, pithy-advice-giving guest speaker and a light breakfast.
April guest speaker: Silvia Bardani founder of Viume, an online personal shopping platform that highlights local clothing brands, minimizes impulse buys, eliminates the need to spend hours and hours on clothes shopping, and above all helps its users buy outfits that flatter. An entrepreneur at 29, Silvia will share the what she’s learned about the human side of business, some of her learning curves, and treat us to a demo.
Business Juice talks are intentionally interactive with ample time for Q&A.
