Heidelberg International Professional Women’s Forum

We have exciting news to share!

We are proud to announce that on August 14, 2020, HIP was registered with the district court as an association of public interest.  It is now called the Heidelberg International Professional Women´s Forum (HIP) e.V.

We have spent 2020 transforming what was an active club into a more flexible and officially recognized entity in order to facilitate our interactions with local businesses and organizations.  By adhering to the explicit requirements imposed by this transformation we now have an official identity which allows us to create partnerships and organize public events with the full support that only a registered association can guarantee.

Our purpose, supporting our members in their personal and professional development, remains the same.

We want to thank all our members who contributed their time and efforts to make this happen. Your dedication, creativity and good humor is a shining example of the HIP spirit in action!

On this website you can learn all about the Heidelberg International Professional Women’s Forum (HIP) including how we got started, our mission and purpose, what we have been doing and where we are heading. We invite you to peruse these pages and consider whether HIP might be the professional association you have been looking for!
