Ignite your power to be your authentic YOU.
The Armenian International Women’s Association connects, inspires and empowers Armenian women throughout the world to bring about positive change in their lives and in their communities. We are a membership organization that provides online and offline opportunities for women to access each other and the resources needed to support their growth. Our stories, our passions, and our meet-ups inform our goals and activities. Together, we will build awareness and drive development and change.
The Values that Move Us
We accept that there are risks in everything we do. With those risks come reward and failure, and both are important to us.
We are determined to make a difference. We consider our interests relevant and important, and we choose not to ignore them.
We see all things as both heart and mind. We cherish our emotional connection to others and believe in things greater than ourselves.
What We Do
“AIWA has been and continues to be a unique place where Armenian women can explore their history and their futures, inspiring each other on their journey, forging new pathways.”

“Today we live in an ever-more connected world, and we have the ability and the responsibility to make this a safer and a more hopeful place for our sisters and our communities at large. Today AIWA is the dream-come-true hub for me that perfectly merges our multiple identities as women, and gives us the focal point to inspire, support and empower each other as we strive to create a more equal and just future for ourselves.”
