International Women's Club of Philadelphia


IWCP members  are encouraged to play an active role in the club and make their interests known formally when they apply for membership or informally during one of the many social gatherings and/or events.

They can actively participate in one or more of the following activities:

  • Charity and Fund Raising
  • Organizing food related events such as breakfasts, lunches, or dinners

IWCP members regularly gather to share breakfast, lunch or dinners at the houses of other members. Irene Boden who serves on the board organizes these events and asks members to serve as hostesses. IWCP breakfasts feature certain ethnic groups or nationalities where members can communicate in their native language. Members can choose from

           The French Bistro
           Italian Conversations
           Spanish Breakfast, or
           German Coffee
          For these the hostess provides the food that often reflects specialties from the particular country.
          Lunches and Dinners are Potluck style which means the hostess offers her house for the event and each guest will bring a dish and/or                beverages. Often the hostess will manage who should bring what to ensure a balance of hors d'oeuvres, main dishes and deserts. 

        All food events are published in the IWCP event calendar where members can register for each event. All these events are highly popular and depending of        the size of the hostess' house the number of guests may be limited.

  • Organizing 'After Five' Get-togethers
  • Managing and organizing cultural events such as museum visits, architectural tours, or tours
  • Hiking
  • Participating in Board activities

It is the desire of the International Women’s Club of Philadelphia (IWCP) to welcome women of all cultures to the Philadelphia area and to encourage friendship, cooperation and understanding. It is our goal to help them adjust to a new culture and to meet other women of similar backgrounds and interests.
