Global Business Women

What brings over 15,200 women together?

Ladies! Global Business Women (GBW) is one the largest and active English groups on XING setup in June 2006 with the purpose to 'spark meaningful dialogue' and connect you with other XING female members on business and personal topics.

The highlight of the group is our weekly 'Positive Monday Booster' to kick start your week on positive note. Often a deep and meaningful discussion on important things you wouldn't normally think about.

GBW could be a base for you in XING.. And it's for ladies only whether you are a premium member or not. You'll be one click away from any member in XING - male or female.

Our community values to be be thoughtful and respectful to each another.
