The Professional Woman's Network is a global network of business women who join together to advance gender-balanced leadership and support others (both women and men) in their business ventures. They offer mentoring, assistance with entrepreneurship, networking events, extensive business knowledge and an executive forum to nurture ideas and new businesses.
The message on their website describes their purpose:

A safe place to develop new skills (via our tried and tested volunteering programme), air your professional concerns and frustrations and find solutions!

Each year, the Nice Cote d'Azur chapter gathers together for an 'Inspirational Breakfast' meeting to network, meet new members, and discuss how they can further each other. This year's Inspirational Breakfast will be held the Hotel Negresco on 19 October from 8:30-9: 30 am. The theme for the meeting will be 'Lighting the spark.'
Speakers will include Lena Beck Rorvig, of Beck Global Consulting, and Theresa Destrebecq, PWN's Mentoring Coordinator.
