We’re a group of international women who meet monthly to socialize, celebrate culture and develop friendships. Our members represent 38 countries, and we cordially invite more women of all nationalities to join. We meet the first Wednesday of each month.

From September through April (except for December) we meet at the Midwood International & Cultural Center for a social hour at 10 a.m. and then a guest speaker presentation. Lunch afterwards is optional. We like to go out to try ethnic cuisine.

From May through August, members host potluck luncheons in their homes. Or, we enjoy visits to local places of interest.Our most festive potluck luncheon is held in December. Members bring a national dish to share as we gather to celebrate the holidays in the home of Lakana Bikhazi.

“My main objective is to make sure that everyone who comes to Doorways looking for new friends and interesting activities will feel welcomed and have the assurance that she can belong if she wants to stay.” Lakana Bikhazi
