Welcome!The Working Women's Forum

We are an organization of women in the Western Connecticut area founded in 2005. We meet to grow professionally and personally through education, networking and the sharing of ideas and experiences. We meet the second Wednesday of each month. Our meeting format currently is networking, dinner and cash bar and usually a presentation. The cost to attend is $25 for non-members and $10 for members. You do not need to be currently working to attend meetings or become a member. This is a great organization to belong to if you are self-employed or considering starting your own business.
