International Working Women of Finland is an association that connects woman talent from all walks of life. The group centers around member supporting each other in job-seeking and other aspects of working life in Finland. In a very short period, it has exploded into a 6300-strong community with wide name-recognition among Finnish immigration services. Now they are bringing back their popular Empower Wednesday programme for international talents!
The aim of the program, in accordance with IWWOF’s vision, is to support all international talents, not only women, in their integration process and provide key information to facilitate their working life in Finland.
Empower Wednesday will run from September to December 2021, with events taking place on Wednesday afternoons. All events will be held online in English. They are free to attend, but require pre-registration, the details for which and more information you can find here.
During the meetings, all international talents wishing to know more about topics such as Finnish work culture, opening a business and tips for job searching are welcome. The program will also offer networking events with Finnish companies and other international talents, peer support and inspirational success stories.
