Since 2003, IWCA has led women's empowerment in the international coffee industry by supporting and growing a network of self-organized, self-governing, women-led chapters across the globe.

Each chapter develops and implements strategic initiatives to address their unique needs and challenges . As of 2017, IWCA has grown to include a network of 21 chapters, and in so doing, has created a powerful presence across the industry and globe.


Our Mission

Our mission is to empower women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives; and to encourage and recognize the participation of women in all aspects of the coffee industry.
