The Women’s Network was founded in 1978 by a group of Birmingham business women who saw the need for women to come together and network.

More than 40 years later, we are a strong group of business and professional women who make outstanding contributions in their professions, as well as their communities. TWN cultivates, connects, inspires, and supports a diverse membership, meeting twice a month to network and to hear speakers who are leaders in science, technology, education, business and current events.

TWN is a membership only organization with more than 200 members. Its membership includes leaders who are recognized at state, local and national levels. New members are nominated for their achievements in business, academics, legal, health sciences, media, and other professional fields.
