Women Out West (WOW) provides women from the NSW Orana, Far West and Central West regions and beyond the opportunity to increase their personal and business networks. Our regular events are great social occasions, and are an easy way to meet new friends. Our members consist of women from a wide range of social and professional backgrounds.
There are many reasons that women join WOW. For some it’s a way to meet new people and get involved in the community. For others WOW provides access to personal and professional development activities. Some of our members join with a view to build their businesses, while others have joined up because they enjoy a meal out with the girls.
On 8 March 1995 a group of women came together in Dubbo to celebrate International Women’s Day. Women Out West was formed, and extended its activities from the annual International Women’s Day get together to monthly functions . In 2005 WOW incorporated, better placing the organisation to be able to meet the increasing needs of regional women, and begin the process of establishing satellite networking Women Out West groups in the Central and Far West regions of NSW.
Women Out West seeks to provide a forum for regional women to learn, share and network with other women from the Orana, Central West and Far West regions of NSW. Membership is open to all women who would like the opportunity to meet with likeminded women in a social environment while providing the opportunity to increase both their business and personal networks.
While the focus is not on only on business and professional women, WOW will offer members the opportunity to develop skills and contacts through monthly meetings, seminars and development workshops.Women Out West is non-denominational and non-political.
