NWDA Networking Platform

The Northwest Danish Association (NWDA) networking platform is a way for our community to connect. Whether you are looking for a job, a new hire, housing, or other opportunity, let this be a place for you to find the connections you need.

Our diverse Danish community has members who specialize in various fields, members who own their own businesses, and new graduates eager to enter the job market. The Danish community in the Pacific Northwest sees an influx of students, au pairs, families, and others looking to find their footing in our region. We are here to help.

This new platform is designed to take advantage of our diversity and highlight opportunities within our community to build bridges.

Welcome to our Danish community network!
