Welcome to Polish & American WE, network for professional women

The Polish & American Women Entrepreneurs (WE)
is a leading network for professional women.
Polish and American WE is a New York City- based not-for-profit organization created for women entrepreneurs from the United States and Poland. We connect and empower female innovators, professionals and business-owners in both countries to develop their international careers and grow their businesses in Poland and the United States. Our unique platform delivers visibility to various projects and initiatives, startups and businesses. We support our members with access to resources, educational programs, networking & mentoring opportunities and more – all to empower women, so they can grow locally and expand internationally. This makes the Polish & American WE an active contributor to the development of economic, commercial and financial relations between the United States and Poland.

Polish and American WE together with our Partners in both countries advocates for women-led businesses, investing in girls in STEM, achieving pay parity and more. The Polish & American WE is supported fully by membership dues and sponsorship agreements. Our members represent a diverse range of cultures, ethnic backgrounds, industries, and interests, but most of all they all share a distinctly innovative spirit.
