Business Women's Forum

The Business Women’s Forum has a long and impressive history of delivering memorable conferences to the working women of Connecticut. The BWF was founded 27 years ago by a group of business women leaders in the Greater Waterbury area who created a day of networking and professional development for Connecticut’s working women. Since its founding in 1982, conference attendance has grown from 80 to over 1000.
Dean Ellen Durnin served as conference chair for 2009.
