What we're about

The Expat Woman is an exciting new Meetup group for international women from all over the globe who have moved to the SF Bay Area recently or lived here for a while . Our goal is to help the creative, career-driven expat woman navigate and enjoy her life in the US. We have events every month that include networking, happy hours, workshops and exploring local haunts .

When you move to a new country, you often leave behind your friends, your family, your jobs, your favorite stores, restaurants. everything that you are familiar with. No matter where you come from, the frustrations of coping and settling into a new country can be universal.

We hope through this Meetup group, you can connect with other expats, share your experiences and culture and have fun navigating the US.

We recently organized a fashion event and networking mixer - check out the video
