LAST WEEKEND the online network for women in Spain ‘Costa Women’ welcomed member number 6,000 to the community.
Costa Women was created in 2010 by Ali Meehan who had seen the concept of women groups in Dubai and Thailand.
During the last seven years costawomen.com has grown to be an information point for women looking at moving to and around Spain and importantly is free to join.
With 23 different local meet ups around the country and the islands – from Barcelona to Ibiza, Madrid to Girona, Costa Blanca to Mallorca and of course, the Costa del Sol proving, if there was a need, that offering women the chance to make local connections is important.
The vibrant online website is now the go-to place for women looking for social meet ups, or business networking.
Working with the mission statement to connect, inspire, enable and support women during their lives prior to and after their arrival in Spain, Costa Women provides somewhere to create blogs, share classified posts, look for jobs, or join one of the interest groups.
All of this, coupled with approximately 10 local events per month (from book clubs, to business networking breakfasts, informative talks, musical and charity events, dinners and lunches) makes for a fun community.
Costa Women welcomes 62 different nationalities (including Spanish members) and also hosts an annual International Women’s Day conference every year in the Marbella area.
