Did you recently move to the San Francisco Bay Area from another country or city?

Are you looking to make new friends or professional connections with other expat and local-born women?

Are you a trailing spouse or currently on a visa that doesn't allow you to work in the US?

Are you looking for advice on finding a job or navigating living in the SF Bay Area?

Moving to a new country or city can be lonely, overwhelming and stressful. But with the right connections, friends, recommendations, and support, you can turn it into an enjoyable experience.

You are invited to our inaugural The Expat Woman CONNECT event
The Expat Woman Connect events will take place once a quarter to help expats and newcomers to the city, connect with our amazing network, ask questions, share experiences and make friends.
We are kicking off our CONNECT series with the event Expat Women in SF: Living and Working in the SF Bay Area in partnership with TOTO USA.

Join us for a fabulous evening of mingling followed by a panel discussion with six expat women focused on living and working in San Francisco. Our venue hosts TOTO are headquartered in Japan and will be serving Japanese tea and refreshments at the event.

The event is open to expat women, women who have lived or worked abroad, women who are looking to relocate or women who are interested in being part of an international network of like-minded women.

The panelists will share their personal stories and insights on being an expat in San Francisco and will also cover topics including education and finding a job or starting a business in the Bay Area, how best to navigate the city both socially and professionally and other aspects of expatriate life.
