The AWN App


Welcome to the Alaska Women’s Network (AWN). Alaska is a big state, but with a population of just over 600,000 residents, it is really a small community. AWN connects Alaskan women with each other, the rest of the country, and the world. We are an apolitical organization providing information to women of all backgrounds.

Want to get involved? Talk to us! If you support the mission of the Alaska Women’s Network, sign up now. Members are eligible for participation in the AWN ListServ — a tool for hundreds of women connected by email all over the Land of The Midnight Sun.

AWN Needs Your Help!
Thank you for visiting the Alaska Women’s Network. 2014 marks the eighteenth year anniversary of our organization and our website. Since 1996, AWN has served as the portal to Alaska, not just for the women of Alaska, but for tens of thousands of women from around the world. Our commitment has been to be the communications network for the women of Alaska and, after seventeen years, we remain the only statewide information source by, for and about women.

Everyone is a volunteer at AWN. Contributions go toward keeping the organization and infrastructure running.
