A Community of Trust
Founded in 2002, the Executive Women's Forum (EWF)
inspires leaders, transforms organizations and builds businesses through education, leadership development and the creation of trusted relationships. Over a thousand members nationwide — from emerging leaders to senior executives — benefit from EWF programs and events annually.
Since 2002, the EWF has been giving women a voice in their profession. The dialogue that begins at our National Conference which gathers over 400 members, continues throughout the year at regional meetings, Cheer networking dinners, industry meet & greets, our LIFT peer & mentoring program, our Leadership Journey and Voice Privacy initiatives. EWF CONNECT extends our members access to each other through an online community.
