Join Australian Women in New York on the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for summer cocktails and spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.

UPDATE: Bring a friend to drinks at the Met and help us launch Meet & Greet!
This new AWNY initiative aims to bring prospective and current members together over a cup of coffee.
We believe Meet & Greet will help Australian women support each other by giving new arrivals to NYC a friendly face to ask for advice, as well as a personal introduction to our network.
Our network receives a ton of requests for advice about New York City. Yet, each of our circumstances is slightly different. Through Meet & Greet, prospective members can identify their areas of interest, such as childcare, changing career, traveling solo, etc – and be connected with a member with similar experiences.
Any prospective member who attends drinks at the Met will have access to the Meet & Greet program. We believe this program to be an invaluable resource for any Australian woman who is new to NYC. We look forward to welcoming everyone as we launch Meet & Greet at the Met!
See you there!
