IWP, International Women in Portugal, is a social organisation for women of all ages and nationalities in the Lisbon – Cascais area. Whether you have newly arrived in Portugal or are a long time resident, being a member of IWP is a marvellous way to meet people from all over the world, to make new friends, and to enhance your life in this beautiful country.
IWP has an established reputation for offering a warm welcome to new members and for providing opportunities and activities that reflect the changing needs of women in Portugal.
Linda began volunteering with IWP in 2009, taking on the role of Lunch Coordinator. Soon thereafter she volunteered as Activities Coordinator. At that time, the club also held a Business Fair each year, where members who worked could promote their services and products. It was the first time that two IWP fairs — Open Day and the Business Fair — were run at the same time, nevertheless Linda, who coordinated both, pulled off this organizational feat with dedication and diligence, all the while diffusing the challenging situation with humor. Following this event, and due to two pregnancies and members moving, the Executive Board diminished from five to two people! Linda quickly stepped in to help by volunteering on the Executive Board as Member Designate. During her Board tenure, she produced and published four A Janela a year (IWP’s now defunct print magazine) and revitalized the Amigas scheme (which has recently been revitalized again as the ‘Locality Meetings’), and she edited and produced the last copy of IWP’s book publication ‘Living at Home in Portugal’. At the end of 2016, Linda retired from her volunteer role as Activities Coordinator — she held this position for 7 years! IWP is deeply grateful to Linda for her time and energy, and for the hundreds of hours she has dedicated to enriching our club and enriching the lives of the members of International Women in Portugal. Thank you, thank you, Linda!!!
