If these statements ring true for you, we invite you to join OWIT Lake Geneva. Our members enjoy many benefits, including: 


OWIT Lake Geneva mentoring program image At different points in our careers most of us have felt the need for a mentor who can challenge our thinking, share their experience and encourage us to reach for the stars.

OWIT Lake Geneva offers a brand new mentoring program focused on connecting OWIT members who are looking for advice and insight for their professional development with other OWIT members who want to share their experience and help others grow.

Learn more about the OWIT Lake Geneva mentoring program and how it can help enhance your career. 

 OWIT Get Togethers

OWIT Get Togethers image OWIT Get Togethers were designed to give members the possibility to improve their visibility by organising their own events on the topic of their choice (in line with the OWIT mission) for their fellow association members.

This event format has been successfully running since August 2013. It is open to all OWIT Lake Geneva members who wish to share ideas around a certain topic, hold a workshop or organise a social outing. 

Read more about OWIT Get Togethers and how you can benefit from holding one.



Volunteering with OWIT Lake Geneva provides you with a unique opportunity to develop your strengths, expand your network, gain more experience in a specific field and give back to the community of professional women. 

If you have the skills or knowledge that could help us provide more value to our members, perhaps through organising events, creating online communities or fostering new professional partnerships - do let us know. 

Check out the open positions, learn more about what it’s like to volunteer for OWIT Lake Geneva and get involved!
