Business Women's Forum 2020

The Business Women’s Forum (BWF) is the largest, longest running full-day annual conference for women in Connecticut. This exciting event showcases nationally known speakers and trainers who educate and inspire attendees both personally and professionally.
In addition to providing attendees access to phenomenal speakers, networking opportunities and diverse training, the Forum has supplied in excess of $200,000 in scholarships to female college students pursuing a business degree.
Prominent keynote speakers throughout our long history include Barbara Corcoran, Suze Orman, Robin Roberts, Paula Abdul, Jane Seymour, Goldie Hawn, and Jamie Lee Curtis. Along with two keynote addresses, workshops are offered throughout the day which educate and address issues of importance to employers and employees.

Amazing High Energy

The high energy was amazing, so much so that it was pervasive throughout the day and carried into the breakout sessions. There are always fantastic "take-aways" from this event that energize me to take a fresh positive approach at work and in my personal life. There were so many opportunities to engage with other business professional and an abundance of great ideas for increasing productivity, motivation and engagement with my team
