Relocating to Winston-Salem? We are here to welcome you! Winston Welcomes Women is a partnership between REACH Women's Network and Greater Winston-Salem, Inc., uniquely designed to support professional women newcomers to our city. Whether you are relocating for your job or a partner's job, we extend a welcoming hand and help you get connected to the community.

How it works.

Navigating a new career, a new home, and a new community is challenging so we've created a Welcome Circle just for you – with resourceful, professional women who will REACH out to make your transition easier. The Welcome Circle will reach out to you, help with needed resources, recommendations, and support you as you navigate your new community, job, home, and schools over a three-month period. Winston Welcomes Women hosts gatherings for Welcome Circle participants and newcomer professional women at various locations across the community, so you, as a newcomer to Winston-Salem, get to know our city and other professional women. To get started, complete a brief questionnaire. A Welcome Circle member will reach out to you shortly. You and your Welcome Circle will get acquainted and discuss how we can support you with resources, recommendations, and networking needed over the next three months. Questions?
