-Among the several Finnish-linked societies in the New York area, we think about women’s issues. Whether you are a Finland-connected Finn, Scandinavian,  American or of other nationality, we welcome you.
-What can we do to connect with and help each other? How can we forward our projects, our visions, our common awareness of global politics and culture as they impact women? What can FAWN do to enrich all our lives in addition to on-going networking?
-We of the FAWN Board of Directors are actively engaged with the above ties - as well as partaking in various civilized pleasures (wine-tastings, cruising) and much more. We need your ideas too - that's why we look forward to seeing and welcoming you soon.

Best wishes for the Holidays from the Board of Fawn.

Please stay tuned for our upcoming events in the New Year.

“Summer Get-Together with Margo Jefferson”  

We celebrated summer on Monday June 20, 2016 at Tuttle’s Bar and Grill in New Your City while we enjoyed journalist and writer Elizabeth Kendall’s interview with award-winning author Margo Jefferson about her book "Negroland". Related topics such as diversity, friendships, etc. were also included since those are issues that most of us deal with in our professional and personal lives. There was a lively discussion following the interview. We want to thank Elizabeth and Margo for this great interview and contribution to our programming. Margo’s book will be out in paperback in August.
