History

Welcome to the Seoul International Women’s Association (SIWA), the largest and longest-running international women’s organization in Korea!

Since 1962, SIWA has been a place where women from around the world could meet, forge friendships, learn about Korea and other cultures, contribute their talents and ideas, and help improve the lives of those in need.

As many ideas so often are, SIWA was formed around a kitchen table by individuals who were looking to connect to their community and make a difference as they did. That spirit is as vibrant today as it was more than five decades ago.

With more than 400 women from over 45 countries, including Korea, our members know that there is always something exciting happening at SIWA and a way for them to get involved – whether it is by connecting with fellow members through our weekly or monthly tours, interest group activities, Coffee Mornings, and enrichment classes, or by contributing their skills – and building new ones – to help run the organization and plan fundraising events.

We invite you to connect to Seoul’s international community with SIWA!
