The Southside Women's Network (SWN) of Coastal Virginia brings women together to support each other in business and in life.

We are a community of women in business dedicated to building strong connections, referral partners and friendships. Through a variety of events and social media, the Southside Women’s Network (SWN) provides a forum for collaboration, mentoring and sharing of ideas, resources, and inspiration.

SWN was founded as a resource for women who are looking to increase their knowledge, collaborate with other professional women and leverage resources. By connecting authentically, we promote, support, and inspire each other. 

If you are a woman in business — whether you work for a company or you’re doing your own thing — we invite you to join us.
