This year marks 45 years
since the founding of IWF,

Nevada International Women's Forum.
Stephanie Mathews O'Keefe, the Chief Executive Officer of the International Women's Forum & Leadership Foundation, will be inspiring us at our September luncheon with a thought provoking presentation on the engagement and impact of IWF around the world.
The IWF International Board of Directors has begun its strategic planning process to ensure IWF continues to be the most important organization for women leaders, and that it is both programmatically cutting edge and financially stable. There are a total of 74 Forums world wide; the newest one is in Alabama. There was record attendance at the Cornerstone Conference in Barcelona, and over 350 attendees have already registered for the Conference in Toronto.
Don't miss this amazing opportunity to be energized by the global influence and impactful leadership of the International Women's Forum.
