Interested in joining Australian Women in New York, but not sure how to get involved? Nervous about not knowing anyone? AWNY is a non-profit organization established to provide Australian women in New York a network to tap into. We are launching a new program called ‘Meet & Greet.’
The AWNY network receives lots of requests for advice about New York City, and every circumstance is a different. Meet & Greet gives you, as a new arrival to NYC, a friendly face to ask for advice, as well as a personal introduction to our network. Through Meet & Greet, one of our AWNY members will connect with you directly.
Contact us at AWNYconnect@aaanyc.org with a little information about yourself and what you’re interested in finding out more about (kids, career networking, food or music, etc.). This will help us match you up with one of our members, an Australian woman who has experienced what it is like to transition and navigate this city. Whether you’re new to the city or you just want more information about AWNY or simply are looking to meet other fellow Aussies, rest assured, your AWNY member through Meet & Greet will help you out! AWNY is here to help make your transition a little easier.
