WOW! Forum

The Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce has presented the WOW! Forum since 2004 to support and empower professional development and personal growth opportunities for women in the workplace.

The WOW! Forum Advisory Board meets monthly throughout the year to plan the day-long event. Over the years, we have welcomed guest speakers including Susan St. James, Gayle King, Phylicia Rashad, Ann Leary, Kim Lyons, Janet Peckinpaugh, Diane Smith, Jennifer Lauck, Lynn Sherr, Cindi Bigelow, Alana Stewart, Amy Newmark, Taylor Kinzler, and many more talented and gifted businesswomen to share their stories, and to inspire and educate our attendees, which in addition to being educational, is also fun and exciting. The event typically includes a continental breakfast, lunch, dessert, a wine reception, special giveaways, and a silent auction.

Together, we are advancing women’s leadership across careers and cultures by sharing knowledge and ideas, enriching each other’s lives, and providing a network of support to promote opportunities for women in leadership.
