The International Women’s Forum (IWF) was founded in 1982, and provides a global stage upon which women learn from other women leaders across disciplines, sectors and societies. The organization sponsors a rich array of conferences open only to members and their guests. International programming, conferences, galas, symposia, communications, publications and special functions offer unmatched access and learning experiences.


The IWF also feeds the pipeline of future women leaders, most importantly through the Leadership Foundation that has provided in-depth training and mentorship for over 250 women since 1994. The program sustains, prepares, and promotes tomorrow's women executive officers and principal leadersIWF NJ is proud to have been doing its part feeding the pipeline of future women leaders by supporting nine corporate and one nonprofit Leadership Fellows from within the state.
