Our Mission

Our mission is to unite and connect women of Italian heritage and celebrate the achievements they have reached. To inspire and support our members via our networking events, mentoring workshops, conferences, and seminars through which we can share experiences, stories and ideas.

IBWN Mentoring


What brings us together is our love of our heritage, culture and professional interests.  Our networks'  mentoring program offers the opportunity of helping young professional females get their footing in the business arena, and provide a connection and professional opportunity to give back to the community sharing experiences, knowledge, ideas and support for both local and new to Australia females.

We'd love to send you regular event updates, business news and industry insider knowledge.

Traditions | History | Culture

Always remember who you are and where you came from. Embrace what our mother's had difficulty in relating to and understanding. Our families, traditions, culture and language are very special, we are who we are because of them. Let's continue the dream that our parents had for their children, for us. Continue the traditions, continue the culture, continue the language... it is our duty to do so on behalf of our migrant mothers

Dont bottle those stories, share them at not only a personal level but also at a professional level. Help preserve our heritage, our language our traditions by sharing them through our network.
