Our Mission

We are executive women working together to increase the number of women in leadership roles, expand their impact and influence, and position them to drive positive change in the region.

Our Vision

The Forum of Executive Women is recognized as the source for leveraging the collective power of women’s leadership in the Philadelphia region.



Our History

Founded in 1977, The Forum of Executive Women is a membership organization of 500 women of significant influence across the Greater Philadelphia region. The Forum’s membership is comprised of individuals holding the senior-most positions in the corporations, not-for-profit organizations and public sector entities that drive our regional economy and community.

Dedicated to a mission of leveraging the power of executive women in the region to advance the impact and influence of women leaders across a broad spectrum of society, The Forum has served as the linchpin for a multitude of initiatives that have sparked critical conversations in executive suites, board rooms and public policy arenas.

The Forum’s members join together to exchange views that expand and strengthen their own relationships and inspire progress toward a world in which women and men share an equal place in leadership, policy and decision making in all private and public entities. Specific Forum programs range from symposiums and CEO roundtables to the publication of research reports and outreach promoting the value of racial and gender diversity on boards and in executive suites. A robust mentoring program with varied initiatives enhances The Forum’s commitment to build the pipeline of our next generation of women leaders.
