Coffee with Christina & Kaitlyn - Founding team members, Women of Vienna
Women of Vienna is the largest English-speaking community and resource for women living in or near Vienna, Austria. With 15 offline events per month, multiple sub-groups catering to interests such as STEM, sport and creating a safe space for LGBTQI+ identifying women, it is a beloved juggernaut with nearly 18,000 members (and growing!). They have recently progressed to become a registered non-profit organisation.
Our chat uncovers the process of growth the group and volunteer admin members had to go through over the last 5 years, how to handle online trolls and enforce community standards and the value of a women-only space online. Kaitlyn and Christina also share their personal stories of the impact the group has had upon their personal and professional lives.
