Our Team

Australian Women in New York is made possible thanks to our team of volunteers. We are a dynamic group of Aussie women who donate their time and skills to create vibrant events and resources for our community.

We’re always looking for extra support, so if you would like to join our team, we’d love to hear from you! Check out more information on how to volunteer, or drop us an email at awny@aaanyc.org.
