Our beloved AAWE will turn 60 years young this coming year. The thriving, diverse, multigenerational community we know today has a rich and inspiring history. Although we’re not yet quite sure when we will be able to celebrate AAWE’s 60th anniversary in person, we’re kicking off the year by celebrating our beginnings, our present and our future though an ongoing 60th Anniversary Series!
In coming months, you will learn how our association was founded – and why – and get to know some of the amazing women who contributed to its growth and accomplishments.
You’ll also hear from some of the younger members, our “Younger Wonders”, who are making AAWE relevant for the newest generation.
And you’ll find out more about the wide scope of activities that have enriched our members’ lives as well as built AAWE’s reputation as a pillar of the American and international community in Paris.
AAWE means so much to so many people: an extended family, a cultural home, a source of friendship and support, an avenue for community service, and, of course, a group of dynamic women that know how to have fun!
Getting to our 60th anniversary didn’t happen by accident — it took vision, energy, and dedication. Making sure that our association is sustainable through our 70th anniversary and beyond is a project for us all.
We have a lot to celebrate, and look forward to sharing it with you!
