This is SWEA Los Angeles
SWEA Los Angeles is a chapter of SWEA Inc., Swedish Women’s Educational Association International, Inc. SWEA Inc. is a global non-profit organization for Swedish speaking women who live or have lived abroad. Our objective is to promote Swedish culture and to act as a professional and social network for Swedish speaking women around the world.
The organization was founded in Los Angeles in 1979 by Agneta Nilsson. Today SWEA has approximately 7 500 members in 73 local chapters in 33 countries on five continents.
SWEA Los Angeles is a fun and active organization, made up of a diverse group of women of all ages and professions. Our many different interests are reflected in our program and we arrange events on a range of topics: career, theater, art, architecture and health, just to name a few. We have a lively book club, we arrange get togethers with interesting Swedish personalities and we meet for food and drinks at various bars and restaurants around town – a great opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow Swedes.
Our very popular Swedish Christmas Fair helps keeping the Swedish Christmas traditions alive outside our country and the crayfish party in September is a recurring success.
The members of SWEA LA constitute a network and a meeting point for Swedish speaking women who live in the Los Angeles area. Please feel free to contact us with your questions and ideas – we look forward to hearing from you!
