A Welcome Message From Our Co-Presidents

Welcome to the American Women's Association website. We are an international group of women who come together informally to facilitate friendships, cultural  exploration and dialogue for women new and established in Abu Dhabi. We have interesting speakers twice a month on diverse subjects of interest. We also organize activities and events so that we can socialize and explore. Our outreach team identifies ways to contribute in a meaningful way in our local community. 

Please have a look through our website and learn more about us.

We hope to see you soon at one of our events. 

Kimberly Goad & Pamela Lightfoot Sullivan
